I’ve been incredibly interested in online gambling lately. It seems inevitable that the states will pass internet gambling. The long term effects of this will touch more aspects of our lives than people realize both in terms of how gambling will embed itself into our everyday lives and how it will afflict many with gambling disorders.
The following proposal was submitted to Apex Art for their open call. “Winner takes All” is a meditation on the world on internet gambling and how it can become a very personal experience. The exhibition is meant to allow the viewer to meditate on the thrill and excess of internet gambling when it is removed from those tiny screens and thereby better empathize with people who are seduce by it’s draw.
Here are some concept images for the project.
