A few shots of the installation "Toys", exhibited in Halle, Germany.
"Toys" consists out of a bunch of not very intelligent toy-cars who try to attack any intruder.
To control them I simply hacked servomotors into their original remote-controls.
I had this Idea during my residency in Istanbul at the beginning of 2011. As anybody who has ever visited this great city knows, it is a very noisy, chaotic place where eastern and western culture crashes together. Unfortunately, in my opinion, the commercial promises of the west are sucked in without any filtering and are often fulfilled with cheaply produced products from the far east. Plastic toy-cars are just one example of this absurd combination of two worlds.
