Pachipower

When we were invited again for Tokyo Designers Week in 2004, Wouter and Femke and I built this installation on which you could enter a personal question. Upon entry a metal pachinko ball would pop out, to be shot up and to trickle down through a maze of pins to finally deliver a YES or NO answer in burning neon signs. You could take a YES or NO sticker and leave it on the spot or take it with you as a lucky charm. Just like the predictions you get in temples, but now mixed with pachinko.
