Adam Eckstrom is half of the artist collaborative Ghost of a Dream. The collaborative’s work embodies the essence of opulence while being constructed of materials that typically end up in the trash. They mine popular culture searching for discarded materials that people use trying to reach their goals. Whether it is a Hollywood film that transports the viewer into a dream reality, a travel poster promising a luxurious vacation, or a lottery ticket that gives the possibility of a future full of rich decadence; they use these remnants to both re-create people’s dreams, and portray the dreamer.
