Eelko Moorer: Interview 18.04.2011

The guy who killed a bear… no not really the bear laying on his floor is only made of rubber, but just as crazy sick as having a real one and that is probably why we like it! Rockin!!!


Another “work” of him, or pieces of art, or shoes, what ever we my call it are his famous stilts (he obviously simply calls them stilts ^^).


Based in London, he works on a freelance basis for companies, individual customers and on self-initiated projects. Some of the questions asked during his open talk at Polimoda:

Why do you use rubber?
“Rubber makes it toylike and subversal. - that´s interest, not necessarly a sexual interest. ^^”

Is everything possible?
“No. You have to see what the material is telling you and get your hands on the problem start and see what is possible.”

Is being commercial bad?
“No it´s not (incomprehensible look on his face). It opens up many opportunities, as you have a more financial stable situation. And also working in a team is great.

… well commercial or not, fashionable or not- I can get my eyes of this rubber bearskin! Epic! ^^

"See, the poor dream all their lives of getting enough to eat and looking like the rich.
And what do the rich dream of?

Losing weight and looking like the poor."
