The title of the work seems like a wish, but it could be easily received as an encouragement. Luck, and the potential happiness that comes as a consequence, require a great amount of continuous effort. Even though a large percentage of our life might be affected by randomness, where and when the various random events will happen is something controlled by us. In this artwork, a random dice spins at random time intervals, to a random angle, towards a random direction These many factors of randomness create a feeling of surprise, expectation and excitement.
After long research and experimentation, I have made my animated paintings amazingly quiet. The sound of the flat dice when rotating is practically unnoticeable, so your guests can be surprised by the sudden movements, virtually in silence.
The mechanics and electronics have very minimal wear so the work can be running smoothly for years, without requiring maintenance.

Edition of 8.
The pieces of this edition are built and assembled to order. Please allow 2-3 weeks lead time and app. 1 week for delivery. Each piece is signed numbered at the back.
In total, 8 pieces will be created, until the edition is sold out.
Each piece is a copy of the design, function, and specifications, but it is not totally identical to the rest of the pieces. For example, the colours might vary slightly. These small variations keep the hand-made character of the artwork and, by all means, are a good thing! They make the work ‘almost’ unique.
All works are made and shipped from Denmark, by artist and engineer George Koutsouris.
