I no longer love blue skies. In fact, I now prefer grey skies. Drones don’t fly when sky is grey.Zubair Rehman, a 13-year-old victim of a US drone strike, who also lost his grandmother, speaking at the first Drone Survivor hearing in history, at which only FIVE of our Congresspeople could be bothered to attend.

Installations made using thousands of dollars in discarded lottery tickets by Ghost of a Dream
Under the artists’ name Ghost of a Dream, Lauren Was and Adam Eckstrom started a collaborative project in New York, where the two artists live. After artist’s residencies in Basel and Berlin, Galerie Paris Beijing is pleased to welcome them for the first time to Beijing and present site-specific installations in a solo show entitledPrice of Happiness.
Based on collages and large scale objects, their strongly visual works revolve around promises of wealth offered by the lottery. Lottery tickets are pasted everywhere inGhost of a Dream’s work. These scratched tickets carry real dreams that mostly disappear just as quickly as they come. Although they are just discarded bits of paper, they represent fantasies of opulence, which vanish and reappear with each new lottery ticket…
Me before social events
Artist Never2501 used leaves, branches, roots, and dead trees to create this large-scale installation. He did n’t use any tools or nails or screws or anything to build this.
