The Lottery Project, begun in 2005, brought me into the world of fiber art based sculpture. I have always loved paper, and started to find scratch tickets on a daily walk home from work. Beautiful litter, I could not let it sit and float away. I began to think about the dreams in the moment of scratching the image away, the hopes, the desires. It made a hopeful noise. How sad it must have been to lose. Chuck it. Onto regular life again. I thought, let’s make something better with this mound of paper, shake all of the bad luck away.
I originally documented my work here.
