Lucky Day
Paris, 2009
Video 2:22 min. and¬†Object (vitrine with „gold rings“)

In Paris around the Louvre a group of people practices a scam, which is based on the „finding“ of a golden ring. They ask you if it was yours, or just offer it to you out of an impulse of generosity. They wish you good luck and let you go, but after a short while they approach you again to ask for some money. For the video „Lucky Day“ i filmed the trick several times out of the perspective of the victim, but i just used the parts of the finding and presenting of the ring, without the begging part.
