Drawing Machine 1 was an interactive kinetic sculpture which transferred audience energy into a large-scale wall drawing. The work was installed in an abandoned fun-parlour, and encouraged a playful but poetic experience, rendering the principle relationship between man and machine visible. The pedal-powered machine, with its haphazard construction, and fault-prone mechanism, exposed the very human aparatus underlying even the most advanced technologies.
