There are pinball machines with themes ranging from Guns & Roses to Jurassic Park. If you could come up with a theme yourself, which pinball machine would you play?
First, I would love to play Windows 3D Space Cadet with lots of nostalgia.
Afterwards, I believe I would want to see a pinball machine in theme of Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Rooms, for experimental rather than practical purposes.
Also, I am thinking about the installations of Funda Gül Özcan. I think she would make an amazing pinball machine, so I would probably ask her if she would like to do a Funda installation machine.
When was the last time you felt treated Unfair?
I live in a lovely working/living building for artists. The current rental contracts are given out for 5 years to people below the age of 28, a so called ‘jongerencontract’. I said goodbye to one of my young neighbours a week ago, she had to move out of Amsterdam.
It felt a bit unfair. The ‘jongerencontract’ is no sustainable solution for people who, after 5 years, still rely on social housing. I hope that there will be better and more durable solutions for the housing shortage in Amsterdam in the near future.
The world is ending, you can escape in a rocket, the only thing you can take with you is one sculpture, which sculpture would that be?
I would love to secretly pack a few.
First, although not a sculpture, I would like to take an updated version of the Voyager Golden Record with me. So that I could try to explain human life to possible aliens.
Next, I would love to take all Jeff Koons New Hoover Convertibles, because they capture time passing beautifully.
And last, I recently discovered moiré sculptures made by an artist called Matthew Monahan, those are amazing! I would happily take all his 2018’s work with me into space.
