There's something about the whole lottery thing that doesn't feel right to me - getting your hopes high, dreaming, escaping, and then usually being let down.
This happens to me on a daily basis WITHOUT the lottery's help, muchas gracias. So as an experiment, I started buying scratch cards and not scratching them.
It felt funny.
Then I showed it to a few people. It made them feel funny.
It made me think... "I think I'm onto something here."
So, I started this project: I LOVE MY LIFE THE WAY IT IS... a mass collection of unscratched lottery tickets... a small statement that says a lot of things to different people.
One day, I'd like to show this collection in a small space of some kind... a gallery even? Just to see what people's reaction is. And make a book of all of them. Hell, just to make it worth collecting all these damn tickets and never scratching them.
If you think life's a'ight the way it is (relatively speaking, of course), or you see a ticket that's just a bit funny, then send one in and add it to the collection. I would love to have one from your part of the world.
Promise I won't scratch it. Ever.
I've worked out that I need 8,000 tickets to fill a 12ftx12ft room from floor to ceiling. this is my goal. PLEASE HELP!
