(Not) Jammed


as part of DuctTape Collective

What if machines could think or experience emotions? Observing anachronistic machines has prompted us to wonder whether we truly comprehend these human creations. They often act out, get stubborn and defensive, take their time, or start wailing when you ask them to work.

‘(Not) Jammed’ is an interactive installation that explores the process of instant printmaking, rather than the design and fixed final result. The work facilitates a dialogue between human and mischief machines granting the viewer the role of the designer, while also allowing the machine to intervene and generate unforeseeable outcomes.
