The Great Calculation Weekend was a series of talks by Mark Glusker and a workshop by Mark and Maria Mortati held at Machine Project in Nov. 2012. This video shows participants in the workshop making gesture drawings of a mechanical calculating machine in action.
One half of the table was set up with tools and machines for participants to take apart and the other half with working and non-working machines for participants to draw. They were led through a series of exercises in contour drawing projects of small parts, to gesture drawings of motors in action.
