Each invisible prayer is like a cloud in the sky, 2018



This collage is made from casino playing cards that have been used by gamblers then are retired from use and sent to prisons to be sorted back into complete decks. Then they are marked and sent back to gift shops around the world. We buy them from the distributor as they are on the way to these shops. It is important when we are making work that we use the actual object people have held and put their hope into, and we never print our own materials. These objects are embedded with the hopes of the people who have held them, and we believe these cards have that energy in them still. The collage made optically with the goal at exciting they eye and ones endorphins in the same way that coming closing to our dreams does. It is also made to attract the viewer, then slowly unfold what it is made of, as there is no blatant way to tell it is made from playing cards.
