Machine Project Benefit
November 5, 2011
One of our most exciting and potentially disastrous events of the year, the Machine Project Benefit was based around that unbeloved place known as the Department of Motor Vehicles.
At DMV: After Dark, bizarre phenomena included but was not limited to: car horn fanfare, competitive sobriety tests, workshops on breaking into/hot-wiring cars, how to escape from a locked trunk, home-made beers brewed by the members of the Machine Project community, heavy metal polka, surrealistic eye charts, "secret pancakes", and a human vending machine.
Please note: This event did no take place at a real DMV but rather in a transformed event space located in Atwater Village.
