James Dodd 'Painting Mill' at Wonderwalls Festival 2017, Port Adelaide

From operatic marionettes to auto-paint tools, this exhibition explores Australian artists as inventors

This exhibition presents six artists who combine their arts practice with engineering and DIY electronics to make unusual and interactive machines: James Dodd (presenting his bicycle-powered 'Painting Mill'), Wade Marynowsky (presenting a pared back version of his 2015 Carriageworks piece Robot Opera), David Lawrey & Jaki Middleton (presenting a series of 'mechanised' dioramas), Cameron Robbins (presenting a solar-powered drawing machine), and Tricky Walsh (presenting something called the 'Terahertz transceiver'). The works in the show are a mix of new commissions and repurposed existing works.

Dream Machines is part of Sydney Science Festival

Head to Hazelhurst Regional Gallery on Sat Aug 19 for a Painting Mill workshop with James Dodds, and Sun Aug 20 for Dream Machines Art Fest Day.
