> DESCRIPTION

Artists Adam Eckstrom and Lauren Was show how one man's junk can be two artists' treasure by creating wondrous works of art from discarded lottery and scratch ticket and other popular culture detritus. The pair creates sculptures and installations that embody people's hopes and dreams for luxury, opulence or the perfect love. The work is visually stunning, while offering a clever critique on society's fascination with instant gratification and the quick fix. Sky's The Limit, made from discarded lottery tickets, is a large scale work that typifies Ghost of a Dream's technique of transforming detritus into a beautifully patterned, elaborate work of art. Ghost of a Dream's works have been shown at solo and group exhibitions in Bologna, London, Beijing, Berlin, Copenhagen, Basel and New York.
