Collective Works by Mischer Traxler

Via @iconeye, a curiously automated machine designed to weave baskets, but only when people are present. Collective Works stands idle until a human presence is detected, when it begins, or continues, to create and color a basket. The more people gathered, the greater the intensity of the blue coloring.


"The project is ambiguous in many ways. The audience are turned into workers, even though their effort is just the time they spend with the machine. ... If nobody is interested in the project, it stops producing and the final product just doesn't get produced. It is production on interest." More at Mischer Traxler. Photo: Mischer Traxler.
