Machine Gardens (2010 – 2014)

This is an ongoing project to generate machines (ie. pieces with physicality / geometry / mechanical movement) from software (language / grammar / ideas).

fourpieces

The software lets the user assemble patterns of cogs and “rack-and-pinion” assemblages, which can then be exported in a format suitable for laser-cutting.

The pieces are then cut from translucent / coloured acrylic and assembled.
