As a characteristic follow up of PAUL, NEILL is made to look like it came directly out of one’s imagination. Koen Van Eeckhoutte shows how important character and story can be when experiencing the world. With NEILL he binds character and spirit to an inanimate object, making it more friend than thing. The character and his story are shown in an illustration.
NEILL’s underside is layered with steel plates instead of regular felt pads to demand a certain approach in use of the object. It should not be pushed or shoved but instead be lifted with care, as to not scrape one’s floor.
INCLUDES: TABLE, CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY, ORIGINAL STORYBOARD, POSTCARD ILLUSTRATION
