The Sewing Machine Orchestra installation invites the spectator to closely observe a computer-coordinated choreography of twelve sewing machines. Like sprawling beasts, the powerful machines invade the space with their unstoppable movements and heavy sounds. With this installation, after a performance where he wakes them up gently, Messier gives his machines free rein, creating a ghostly and terrifying universe.
