Every person buying a lottery ticket has a dream of what to do with the ton of money they get from the lottery. But then it is a lottery and only a lucky few ever get the chance to win and realize their dreams of money and the luxury it brings along. The others are well, left with empty tickets and hopes for a better success with more lottery tickets. Artist collective Ghost Of A Dream delves on this very connection between lottery tickets and dreams of the ticket buyers.
They create items of luxury and desire out of discarded lottery tickets, going in line with what the tickets may have translated into if the buyer actually had won the lottery. Installations have been created with over $70,000 worth of discarded tickets that create a “Dream Home” filled with luxuries, art, furniture and of course, even a dream car.
