Cycle 08 Alt-w Production Award -
Peggy Hughes, Padmini Ray Murray & Claire Stewart
A publishing time-machine, providing unexpected and immersive experiences for intrepid book readers. Using a combination of human interaction and artificial intelligence it will create custom 'books' that they can take away.
Comprising old and new media, electronics, programming, mechanical engineering and traditional craft, the installation that is the machine will gather open source material and produce a publication in one of many formats.
Physically and aesthetically, the machine represents an anachronistic mishmash of time periods of literature, printing and publishing. Created by the team who brought us the Electric Bookshop. Start your presses now.
