Ashley Pastore transforms lottery tickets, old newspapers and even the dust she collects while cleaning houses into monuments of nostalgia. The artist’s goal? To get us to think about time, specifically the ordinary moments and rituals that fill our daily lives—like buying a lottery ticket or reading the newspaper. Through repetition, Ashley hopes to give a sense of presence to these seemingly small moments and show them for what they really are—monumental acts that shape and reflect who we are.
