The ritual of traditional fortune reading from coffee grounds, and believing in the promises given by the fortuneteller, work as a medium to deal with an uncertain reality, and called 'future'. The idea of our past, present and future is tied to each other, giving this ritual a more effective role in Turkish people's lives. I search for the subjectivity of each Turkish person in this project, who temporarily lives in London. From the moment one is told their fortune, they become someone else, a new person with different expectations and dreams. The semantic dialogue between the individual and the practice of fortune reading from the black residues of coffee grounds, renders the coffee saucer to a respective secondary portraiture. Yet Every saucer is qualified to denote just the next 3 MONTHS In other words 3 'AY'
