How to improve our quality of life without spending money? What role does status play in our identity and happiness? In exploring these issues, Jelle Mastenbroek was reminded of an old Dutch tradition: presenting expensive porcelain in special cabinets as a display of wealth. His new interpretation of this custom turns the cabinet into a type of vending machine. Drop in a coin and enjoy the tinkling notes made as it hits cups and plates on its way down. The coin can be retrieved afterwards, making this unique musical experience completely free.
