Hand embroidered double-sided on one piece of fabric. The front reads "Don't Worry Be Happy" the back reads "It's All Fucked". For the SFW (Safe for work/So Fucking What) group exhibition in Hong Kong.
In this double sided embroidery the positive and negative messages are contained within each other. Often self help/uplifting quotes can seem a little overly positive and off-puttingly earnest so we wanted to create a tongue in cheek response to that stereotype. Everything is all fucked so you may as well try not to worry and be happy while you can.
