On the auspicious occasion of the Magic 8 Ball’s 69th birthday, artist Curtis Kulig and his Love Me studio pay homage to the truth-seeking toy. The object’s original designer, Albert Carter, was inspired by his clairvoyant mother who communed with ghosts. In a nod to odd serendipity, a billiards company asked Carter to transform his cylindrical fortune-telling object into a big 8 ball, and one of the most iconic toys in history was born. In a year when hope and optimism are so crucial to our psyche, Kulig has flipped the script. His Magic 8 Ball is sunshine yellow with a knowing smile, begging you to ask a question! He’s updated the twenty possible answers to positive refrains like “Duh,” “Indubitably,” and “Indeed,” along with more meditative responses like “Ask God,” “Ask me in a year,” and “Not No." The Love Me Magic 8 Ball has been produced in a signed edition of 100 exclusively for New Museum Store.
