Artist Statement:


These associative objects are derived from similarities in form and function of everyday items, as well as wordplay. Retro components, perhaps considered futuristic in their time, are re-formed to create new, contemporary devices illuminating the dialogue between art and design.

NAAITAFEL(sewing table) is a combination of functions. Instead of a needle from a record player, a sewingmachine needle is used. NOOTZUIGER(note sucker) is a harmonium (air organ) built into a device that also uses air pressure to operate a vacuum cleaner. STRATENSPELER(street player) is a device that makes urban patterns and textures audible. A microphone is used together with rotation to create an audio loop of the particular surface it’s placed on.
