Hey, we’re going to be on TV! Specifically, Artbound on KCET is airing a special episode on the Machine Project Field Guide to L.A. Architecture this Thursday at 9pm.
If you miss the official TV screening, you can come watch it with us, in our Mystery Theater, from noon-6pm this Saturday. If you missed our screening, watching online here.
This hour-long Artbound episode features videos and interviews from our summer project as part of the Getty initiative Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in L.A. It is also our first appearance on public television. Join Machine as we explore downtown Los Angeles by helicopter, view a music performance from underneath a swimming pool, set off a sextet of smoke alarms, serenade Silver Lake’s Happy Foot Sad Foot sign, and a witness a theatrical performance in MAK Center for Art & Architecture’s R. M. Schindler house featuring an appearance by Brian from the Crab Pot, who later turns into a dog. Featuring Asher Hartman, Bennett Williamson & Jessica Cowley, Ing, Jacqueline Gordon, Jmy Kidd and the Sunland Dancers, Kamau Patton, and Todd Lerew.
You can also drop by and play optical ping pong at the same time (and play optical ping pong with a pro from 2-5pm)
The entire series of videos and accompanying articles can be viewed on Machine’s Artbound page, viewable here.
