See your dreams dashed to the ground is an excruciating experience – especially, when you dare to dream big. Lottery addicts go through it so often. The art pair Ghost of a Dream, however, takes the burden of discarded lottery tickets off your shoulders and transforms them into such stuff that you always wished to own some day: Dream Car, Dream Vacation and Dream Home.
Lauren Was and Adam Eckstrom, the Rhode Island School of Design graduates deal in dreams. Through their art, the artists aim to make one know what he could have bought, had he just saved the money that he frittered to buy lottery tickets.
A full scale Hummer H3, which is worth $39,000 of lottery tickets, should humor the whims of any lottery freak.
It goes for the $70,000 worth of scratch-off lottery tickets ‘Dream Home’ as well. Crammed with framed portraits, chandelier, area rug, a framed antique mirror, an ornate china closet, an antique clock and a statuesque candleholder, the Dream Home touts a mosaic quality.
