Meta Grgurevič and Urša Vidic Mechanical Trinkets project is a symphony of kinetic objects, video, performance and music that contemplated the relationship between man and machine, collaboration and cooperation between individuals, and the position of the individual within wider social relationships. The work referenced both Charlie Chaplin’s critique of modernity as expressed in the 1936 film Modern Times and its embrace in the Russian theatre system of Vsevolod Meyerhold. These anxieties and enthusiasms continue to be reflected in the new industrial age, in which everyone has to do their part in order for the functioning system to continue as a complex, living organism.
