The Random Machine
The exhibition presents drawings of Non-Representations made out of lines, which is an expression that avoids formal definition; the Line used as a tool for “drawing” abandons any intention to represent something. It becomes origin and end, cause and effect.
Carlos Campos has been designing, building, and operating Random Machines for the last ten years. Starting out with very simple battery toys, Campos and his students in Argentina, Germany, and Italy have generated fascinating Non-Representations. In this exhibition together with Campos’ personal work, we can find drawings from University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, University Vanvitelli, Italy and DIA Dessau Institute of Architecture, Germany.
