I have an interest in the capacity of the surface to provoke sensory experience and emotional responses. “I Only Make Friends with Money” is an interactive piece whereby the audience are encouraged to throw coins into a reservoir of blue synthetic goo. The coins will slowly submerge into the goo. The act of throwing a coin is associated with the ritual of wish-making. There is a sense of relief when we see money, an object burdened with meanings, slowly disappearing into the unknown.
