The artist offers a lottery ticket in exchange for a dream. For every ticket, she asks the recipient to write down what he or she would do if he or she won. With these wild imaginings, the artist explores the complex social world underlying the lottery, encouraging people to dream big—bigger than they would if she were simply to give away dollar bills.
