Answering Machine (2012) by Paul Spooner

December 15, 2012 by · Comments Off 

A new one-off piece from Paul Spooner. It’s a machine for undertaking thankless tasks; useful for refusing loans and favours of all kinds, invitations to dull parties, requests to take part in surveys, to look after neighbours pets or children, to rescue victims of crime, to take part in the democratic process, to become a collector of automata and to deal with all other questions to which the answer, in our heartless hearts, is “no”.

Size, including paper roll, is 160H X 220W x 100D. Made from old pine, new lime, brass, steel, Delrin, Langton watercolour paper, leather. An extra roll of paper comes with it (same message, though), which can be fitted if the first one gets too worn.

A tremendous new peepshow piece from South American artist Pablo Lavezzari features a perilous journey by boat for only one observer. Turn on the light, open the doors at the front and start cranking the handle… Witness the scene of a shipwreck, on this recently abandoned vessel. The sounds that mimic the roar of the sea and the creaking timbers are mechanical.
