Machine Project: A Field Guide to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art
Machine Project, 2009 - Art - 169 pages
Machine Project is a Los Angeles-based social experiment that investigates art, technology, natural history, music and poetry through collaboration and conversation. On November 15, 2008, Machine Project took over the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to orchestrate ten hours of performances, workshops and events experimenting with the museum's collection and seven-acre campus. "Machine Project" documents over 50 artists' projects, contextualized with interviews and essays. Highlights include a nineteenth-century description of the invention of the glass harmonica, a fragmentary history of the museum's architect, instructional diagrams for do-it-yourself mechanisms, a fruit salad recipe based on the museum's collection, and a tour of the museum's campus during the Pleistocene epoch.
