Jackpot by Kristin Sæterdal
Year: 2007
Size: 3 x 3 meter
Materials: Wool, Linen, MDF

The motif has been chosen from the global visual language of slot machines and gambling. “Jackpot” is not as nice and promising as it seems. It contains a possible future of bankruptcy and addiction. The self-made-slow-jackpot offers an alternative way of gaining happiness and contentment than the slot machine at the casino. I made this work at a time when a new law that forbade most of the slot machines was out. The Three Lemons were exhibited separately first and then I added the other six works for the exhibition at Format where it was sold. I have also made and sold two more variations of the Cherries.
