Dream Machine incorporates footage from Ralph Steiner's 'Mechanical Principles' from 1930, suggesting a fictional machine with imaginary interconnecting parts.
The film was made especially as a response to Jeremy Deller's exhibition 'All That is Solid Melts into Air' for Video Jam at Manchester Art Gallery. The film was paired with the Manchester based duo Bernard + Edith who provided an original soundtrack to the film, performed live.
