Scratch ticket art  AARON COHEN  ·  AUG 06 2010

Lauren Was and Adam Eckstrom, as Ghost of a Dream, create artstructuresculptures out of scratch tickets to show "unfulfilled dreams as well as money that could have been saved and possibly spent on the item itself". "Dream Car" uses $39K worth of discarded tickets, and "Dream Home" uses $70K. That one's really nice.

For what it's worth, Was and Eckstrom aren't the first to see art in scratch tickets. Rebecca Simering has explored the medium, as has the "I Love My Life The Way It Is" project. ILMLTWII is a project I want to believe in, but before sending scratch tickets to strangers in England, you should be aware of the risks.
