Drawing Machine

The Drawing Machine was conceived out of an interest in man-made tools – Man’s need to measure, calculate and evaluate the forces of the world in order to understand  it better, as well as the sculptural nature of the instruments created.  The components of the Drawing Machine are tools for measuring weight, time, load, mass, frequency, beat and gauges for wires.




This machine moves only at the hands of the people who touch it.  The unpredictable impact of an individual’s pressure, force and rythmn contributes to the mark-making on the paper below.  The suspended instruments are used out of context and take on a new life when linked to each other.
