Whitworth Gallery Installation: Dream Machines

We were invited to curate and installation and provide a drop in activity for the The Whitworth’s One year anniversary. The theme was paper and this fitted perfectly with Noise Orchestra’s paper graphical scores. Taking inspiration from the 1960s wallpaper collections at the gallery, we laser cut huge paper dream machines with patterns by artists such as Lucienne Day.  It was an opportunity to test out our new gold drone circuit as a standalone installation piece. We had a great response from audiences who were intrigued by the sounds, circuitry and beautiful light patterns cascading throughout the gallery. Young people and families participated in a workshop session to draw and cut their own graphical scores and play these on the turntables. It was great to road test and guage public reaction to our noise machines so early on in the project and see the dream machines do their stuff in the portrait gallery amidst Lucienne Freud paintings.
