Drawing Machine #6

Wood, metal, brick, rope, pen, paper

150cm H x 60cm W x 15cm D


Inspired by the drawing machine installed in the Children's Room at the LYC Museum & Art Gallery (1971-1982), Drawing Machine #6 is the sixth in a series of prototypes developed using found objects, gravity, and energy transference. Designs for the machine evolved alongside weekly creative sessions with young people at Akeman Community Centre. Following Li Yuan-chia's resourcefulness, the machine is constructed from repurposed materials including a dismantled easel and two floor bricks retrieved from Kettle's Yard during the 2015-18 renovation.
