1 in 13 986 378 (Redistribution 2)

1 in 13 986 378 is a representation of 'Lotto', the UK's national lottery. Every possible sequence of numbers possible within the game is printed onto A4 paper at font size 2, still readable by the naked eye. This forms a stack of nearly 2000 sheets of gray paper.

Containing every combination of numbers that will ever win, or ever has won, this pile of paper offers the key to financial well-being and security without pointing a direct path to it. This is a Borges labyrinth; a coded window on the lucky and luckless, a schematic for everything and nothing.
