Machina Loci Art Projects
Encompassing sculpture, installation, workshops and writing; Carol Mancke’s machina loci art projects engage people in fun yet thought provoking collaborative activities.
Exploring the performative possibilities of places and situations, these projects interfere in the social fabric, creating platforms which invite visitors to act. They generate opportunities for overlaying physical experience and spatial/social/cultural interpretation so that viewers move without thinking between the immediate and the mediated. Machina loci art projects draw the audience out of the passive stance of simply looking and into active collusion in creation and its attendant risks and rewards.
A developing strand is the idea of ‘clearings’ or temporary transformation of spaces/situations through art installations that question and/or strengthen place identity.
