The struggling economy is probably the only reality check people need to work harder and complain less, yet the Wheel of Misfortune art piece rubs salt into the wound, albeit in a clever way. Parodying the popular and long-running television game show 'Wheel of Fortune,' this street art gives it a 'glass half empty' makeover.
Created by street artist Aware, the Wheel of Misfortune is located at an old magnesium plant in Las Vegas. Mimicking the colorful wheel used in the game show, instead of cash prizes and vacations, it sports a lot of zeros and phrases such as "Lose a home," "Lose all hope" and "Bankrob."
Although the concept of the Wheel of Misfortune is already interesting, the scale of it is even more impressive.
