Have you ever tried to apply for funds for contemporary art productions? machinaZOIS is the first Electromechanical Patron that financially helps artists to produce their work!
It's a pinball machine whose game's theme is: "strategies of fundraising for contemporary artistic productions". The player finds himself in the role of an artist who has to raise as many financial subventions as possible for the production of his artistic work.
The applicant has to prepare an application, attach all required documents to it and then send it from the Post Office. A Committee of Experts then decides whether to approve or deny it.
At the same time, he has to take care of thousands of other bureaucratic aspects related to the production of his artistic work as well as very important social aspects such as lobbying and flirting with a member of the Committee of Experts. He does so thanks to a special set of icons, bumpers, displays, and drop and moving targets located on the playfield.
To approach machinaZOIS the player has to introduce a one-euro coin. The applicant who gains the highest score gets the entire jackpot. This amount of money represents the Electromechanical Patron's contribution to the actual production of the winning artist and has to be used solely for this purpose.
machinaZOIS doesn't demand applications, bills, financial reports, or bureaucracy of any kind...
It pays off immediately and in cash...
It is tax-free...
It is very democratic and transparent: the best applicant wins! Regardless of personal connections...
