Last December at the Juxtapoz Club House Miami 2017, 2501 presented La Macchina N°10 their latest version of "La Macchina” series - a project based on devices that let people paint on a roller with 2501's customized tools and brushes. The intention was to provide a platform where artist, musician, and viewer can perform and experiment in real time audio/video performance.
The participatory public can develop texture, experiment and play a role in creating temporary site specific artwork which records the movement of lines in time. By moving back and forth in a loop between the public and the surface the paint continues to change. It is a kind of machine that takes an input of line, i.e. it receives visual info and gives you back information, transferring it, translating it into collective visual terms. You can skim through the roll of paper painted by the audience and see represented in it a concept derived from the most elementary idea in cybernetics, that of input-output. The fundamental idea is one of feedback, an idea in the cybernetic background, in which the aim is for there to be no difference between the painter and the public who follows La Macchina’s flow. The public create the paint as much as the loop does: both things happen contemporaneously.
