Human Machines Coronavirus late May update

A further Coronavirus update regarding the Human Machines tour schedule and changes to the exhibition.

Worcester Museum and Art Gallery have had to cancel exhibiting the Human Machines exhibition due to various coronavirus related issues and are sadly unable to accommodate it at a later date.

We have acquired some touch free buttons – similar to the type sometimes found on automatic exit doors – so as soon as the exhibition is allowed to re-open we will be modifying the operation plinths to hands free. This will make all the pieces except the Midlife Crisis Bagatelle, which works with a spring return lever mechanism, safe for the public to interact with.

So currently, as of May 20th, the exhibition is still sat in Gracefield Arts Centre in Dumfries and may end up being exhibited there for a little while when the lockdown restrictions are relaxed to allow galleries to open, it will then go to the venues below.

Work on Human Machines exhibition well under way

Johnny and Amanda have been working on some new interactive pieces for their forthcoming Arts Council funded touring exhibition Human Machines which will open at 20-21 Visual Arts Centre in Scunthorpe this July and tour nationally for a couple of years (at least).Tour schedule to follow later but here are a couple of images of their Midlife Crisis Bagatelle to be going on with.

The Amazing Dog Bike goes to Mablethorpe

In September we took our family street show, The Amazing Dog Bike to the Bathing Beauties Festival in Mablethorpe. There are images of us there on our friend’s blog

It was a great day and we cycled our vehicles between Sutton on Sea and Mablethorpe doing our interactive dog show in both locations.
