High Desert Test Sites & Machine Project Off-Road Expo
Date & Time

Machine Project

High Desert Test Sites and Machine Project are teaming up to present Off-Road Expo, coming March 28th and 29th. We’ve invited a few of our favorite artists and you, the public, to join us for a weekend of camping and art activity at a secret off-road site in the desert (site will be roughly 100 miles from both Joshua Tree and Los Angeles).

Participating artists include: Bob Dornberger, Sean Duffy, Johanna Hedva with Arne Gjetlen, Joe Seely & Nickels Sunshine; Clare Kelly and Maria Garcia, John Knuth, Candice Lin; Chrysanthe O, Gabie Strong & Dustin Smith of KCHUNG, and Michael Parker.

Here’s how it’ll work: to get site location/reserve your spot, make your payment here (sliding scale admission from $10 to $100). Alternatively you can find a list here of everything our artists need to make their projects happen. Email machine@machineproject.com to commit to providing one or more of these objects, we’ll connect you with the artists who need them, and in exchange we’ll reserve you a spot at the expo. Space is limited.

In addition to bringing everything you need to camp for an evening, please bring ghost stories, weird projects to show off, and a meal to share for a sunset potluck dinner. (Don’t forget to pack out everything you bring in!) Hope to see you there!


P.S. There is a $15 car fee at the Expo location. Carpooling is highly encouraged! Email machine@machineproject.com if you have space in your car you’d like to make available to fellow expo-goers. There will be a caravan leaving from Machine Project on the 28th.
