Jean Shin has collected thousands of discarded “Scratch & Win” cards to create what she has called ‘Chance City.’ The towering lottery ticket towers come up to a total amount of $32,404 lost.

The current tower that Jean Shin has made measures 7 feet by 21 feet by 10 feet, and is being shown at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The urban complex-like structure embodies the hope and loss of thousands of ordinary people.
