About mebeta


What’s the worst thing about a new toy car? To me, its look: like it’s still being owned by its maker – perfect and lifeless. Why? The story went like this:

One day I took an almost mint diecast Trans Am to the playground. Yet, I wasn’t the only kid with that specific model. The inevitable mix-up happened: claming my one as his, despite featuring a tiny scratch on the bonnet, he went home leaving me his one. One could argue I made a good deal because his ride was scratch-free. But: it just wasn’t ‘right’. It drove me nuts. MY CAR was now possessed by a seemingly blind idiot who didn’t even dare to listen. Out of frustration, a number of things happened:

  • Being an artifact of childhood tragedy, I threw the damn car away.
  • I swore myself to pay attention to details.
  • I swore the holy god of toy cars it’ll will never happen again, asking myself “how do I make my possession obvious?” – so:
  • I started throwing rocks at them, scratching them on the ground, painted them until they had a patina saying “THIS IS MY F*G CAR”

‘Making them mine’ became the process I loved the most. Of course I didn’t want to destroy them. It was about infusing a life-like quality, a realness, a right-ness into them. It made me experiment with rocks of different sizes, weights and shapes. Throwing the vehicle just above the ground at an angle of 45 degrees with maximum strength also worked great. I documented everything.

The amount of vehicles that broke was considerably low. The process demanded great care. If a door fell off or plastic cracked I always found a way to fix it.

One day I got caught off-guard by a family member, ‘personalizing’ the latest gift on the street. The activity must have appeared reasonably questionable to a grown-up. In retrospect, the inability of conveying the significant importance of my action stuck much longer than the spontaneous slap.

The itch that stuck.
The importance of details, a compass for a life-like ‘right’ quality, a stark knack for experiments, asking naive questions and understanding that words enjoy failing where emotionality begins. This or that way leading to working with a few teams on a few things in a few different roles.
