Save Event: Back of an Envelope: Imagined Machines

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:



An exhibition of ‘sketches' of mechanical and electronic devices curated by Margaret Sharrow. Artists were asked to use an envelope to create a sketch of an imaginary machine, possible or impossible. Some responded playfully and others ranged from the practical to the whimsical, the humorous to the unsettling, to representations of mechanical detail with no reference to function. As Paul Klee put it, drawing is 'taking a line for a walk'
