“Scratch Τickets” are lottery tickets where people can win up to 25.000 followers for their personal Twitter or Instagram account. The work is a playful comment on the narcisstic reflection of the online identity constructed in social media. Depoorter purchased thousands of “fake” followers on Twitter and Instagram from one of the many shady companies that create bots for that sole purpose, and will unload them on whoever finds the winning ticket. There are about 1,000 tickets in total, and in addition to the 25.000 Followers Grand Prize —which Depoorter says hasn’t been found yet— there are tickets yielding 100 and 1000 followers.
