The Thinking Machine contains a vision of the whole world in miniature. A box full of delights from a collaboration between a computer programmer and an artist who wanted to look at the difference between the map, or the way we measure reality, and the terrain, reality itself.
By rearranging sculpted pieces on a board, participants influence the microcosm contained within a wooden casket. When viewed via portals and mirrors more whimsical influences unfold in the interior, meaning that no one really is in control. It's your turn to roll.
