My first inspiration came about 8 years ago while I was looking at a Mouse Trap. I wanted to use the mechanism from a Mouse Trap to shoot an object to a certain point. It proved too difficult to control the object using that mechanism, but while on a trip to Japan, I found a far more practical solution. I found my inspiration in a "Pachinko Hall" see:
For more information, please Google "Pachinko".
The second inspiration for part of the Pachinko Box came from a Museum in China. I went to see an exhibition with Tom, my producer, and saw an object in the building that begged for more attention, so I've used the same construction in the Pachinko Box.
