FOUND LOTTERY TICKETS (WORK IN PROGRESS)
+
I’ve started collecting lottery tickets as a new idea to the side of the found text project.
There’s something about the hastily scribbled marks made by unknown people that has a particular resonance when accumulated in large quantities. Each ticket shows an individual’s subjective response to a tightly controlled system of numbers, which is often motivated by personal significance; completely alien to external viewers. Choices may refer to addresses, the ages of loved ones, important dates and so on, which, when considering the purpose of this whole endeavour brings the relationship between personal significance and personal gain into consideration.
It’s still in its infancy, but here’s a transcription of found examples:
