The Lovely Machine harnesses chaotic forces and uses them for locomotion. This unpredictable and fickle behavior is due to the presence of visitors, sensors, and signals sent to the motor. The Lovely Machine is eager to meet you.
The unpredictable behavior of the machine is directly related to the random procurement of materials used in its construction. Over the course of one day, a washing drum and motor were collected, resulting in the emergent design of a walking machine. The unintentional movement of the washing machine in the laundry room is transformed into a locomotive motor, following a transformative practice of the adaptation and modification of artifacts using found objects and functions.
