Chance: Latitude / Longitude

In my work about ‘chance’ I have been trying to find a relationship between the numbers we choose (that feel lucky) and the numbers drawn every week in the National Lottery – our six versus their six?

I cracked this when I recalled that places are described by co-ordinates x°y’z” N, and a°b’c”E…

So our six numbers identifies one location and their six another. The proximity of the two locations to each other should represent how lucky we are! 

As well as making 59 pairs of panels that depict the numbers and locations, I have created a short ‘slide show’ of the first 59 draws (our numbers picked by artist Claudia Rampelli), incorporating default Google images with a soundtrack from the nearest local radio station. The piece is called I dreamt I woke up and it was me.
