The Machine Project Field Guide to The Gamble House
The Gamble House, California
September 19th – October 5th, 2014
Welcome to The Machine Project Field Guide to The Gamble House. During the two-week AxS Curiosity Festival, our experimental tours and dances, group naps, operatic bird beaks, seances, videos, architectural lawn furniture–and a secret Swiss-Japanese fusion restaurant–transform and reveal the history and visual ideas behind the Gamble House in subtle and not-so-subtle ways.
Complementing those live events, our installation of contemporary paintings and sculptures by notable California artists throughout the house juxtaposes today’s artistic ideas with 1909′s architectural style. On-site, hands-on workshops offer lessons in topics ranging from soap-making to solar robotics, from Craftsman-style cat houses to basic electronics, brings the Arts and Crafts movement in parallel with today’s Maker groups.
