Drawing Machines, 2012
In “Machinic Trajectories”, I repurpose domestic devices as drawing machines by minimally altering the devices with an attached pen or pencil, and thus producing a drawing that accounts for their mechanical workings. I aim at subverting the utilitarian and factual nature of these devices and question technological objectives of precision, reliability and human control over machines. Instead, my work highlights an aesthetic dimension of technology and looks at machines in their role as cultural artifacts.
