In September 2009 Sloom was invited by Renny Ramakers to participate in the celebration project she conceived for NY-Amsterdam 400 years called Pioneers of Change. As part of this project she would like us to re-install the Go Slow installation from 2004. Together with Marije Vogelzang & Hansje van Halem we reconstructed the Go Slow atmosphere and mis-en-scene in an old colonial style house on Governors island, just south of Manhattan. The elderly people that served in the restaurant were all from Manhattan and did such a great job that you actually slowed down a lot. Tea time could easily last 2 hours. Marije invented a new assorted meal and showed how many miles the food had traveled before it was eaten in GO Slow Cafe. Hansje van Halem made an special alphabet for the Cafe consisting of embroidery drawings of letters. The royal family also took a bite. Our neighbours across the lawn were Painted. They worked outside on embroidery and other elaborate techniques for making fabrics and clothes. Experimental Jetset made the signage and visual communciation of the whole project. All in all it was a very inspiring experience for participants and visitors alike.
