CGI/CD&DI: 3D-Artist Room for LAMBERT; ‘The Happy Masked Musician’s Shop’, for Birds of Paradise 2022

“This specific room came forth from Mees Joachim
van Amesfoort hyper-fixating upon something the
musician, Lambert, said in 1 specific interview.
Chess and more predominant; checkers, have
always striked the artist’s fancy, with this perhaps
stemming from their time as an emo-kid back
in the 00s. Furthermore, the idea of chess, was
implemented through chess pieces forming the
base of the furniture present in the space. At the
same time Mees Joachim van Amesfoort wanted to
take one of their sources of inspiration even a step
further, namely through paying homage to the happy
mask salesman from the Legend of Zelda. The space
itself is based upon this specific salesman’s shop in
the Ocarina of Time. Scattered throughout the room
are little references to the artist’s most sentimental
masks, such as Ichigo’s Hollow Mask and the masks
worn by Kaonashi, Shy guys and D’arsay.”
