Dialogue an Exhibition of Machine Drawings by Debbie Locke
The Stone Space is delighted to present 'Dialogue' an exhibition of drawing machines by artist Debbie Locke.
'Dialogue' is a drawing installation comprising of 3 wall-based drawing machines which communicate with each other via Bluetooth technology. Each machine reacts to a âmessage' passed from the previous machine, and tries to emulate the mark that it has made. This cycle runs continuously, creating documents as evidence of the process. Based on clinical data alone, these drawings should be identical, however, by adopting, in part, a âHeath Robinson' approach in the mechanism's assembly, Locke can challenge the notion of the infallibility of machines and add an element of play and humour to the work. This enables the resulting work to escape the confines of its initial deterministic methodology and achieve the unexpected. Locke has been actively encouraging the inclusion of chance and random interference in the process, making it possible for her to study the disparity between logical and irrational behaviour.
