LOVE MACHINE, 2017
...is a soft, handmade arcade cabinet I created during my time at the Roundtable Residency, an artist residency in Toronto, July - August, 2017.
The arcade cabinet hangs from the ceiling, concealing a projector, computer and a Makey Makey.
Designed for 2 or more players, LOVE MACHINE has two flower controllers, which hang from the front of the arcade. Players must hold a controller and then hold hands with each other in order to close the circuit, triggering an animation of a growing plant.
LOVE MACHINE was presented to the public on August 18, 2017, in the residency studio I used to develop it.
