Entertaining professional extraordinaire, Rebecca Gardner just lately debuted her newest artistic idea, the Sugarplum Pop-Up at the St. Regis hotel in New York.

Compulsive gamblers play with a set of signifiers – the dots on a die, the go well with on a card, the symbols on a slot machine – which in themselves are utterly meaningless. They ask of these signifiers a query – what am I? what’s my future?” – and they stake their being on the answer that these signifiers give.

They get a strange pleasure from betting all the things, tied to a horrible guilt over the debts they accumulate. After all, in the long term the house at all times wins: and that’s the answer given to the compulsive gambler. You’re a loser, and your future is to die.
