The term ‘machine’ relates to our kinetic and mechanised sculptures. Designed as performing artworks, characters in shows or huge theatrical reveals, they are connected with the company’s fascination with mechanics, engineering and technology as a performance medium and bringing life to cold steel.
The creation of bizarre and beautiful kinetic sculpture and mechanical set-pieces has been a speciality since the very beginning of our formation, with roots going back to art school and DIY projects in disused factories of South Yorkshire
We build MIDI (musical instrument digital interface) controlled systems, which are then interfaced with motors, compressed air and propane gas valves, ignition, lighting and sonic devices via computers and live music triggers. This control enables both a flexible and live method for manipulating a mechanical installation to interact with performers and theatrical cues.› Get in contact for a chat about how we can help you
