Li-Ming Hu is an interdisciplinary artist who employs a carnivalesque sensibility, to explore the relationships between cultural production and the construction of subjectivities.
Over the last year, a giant Rube Goldberg machine has activated the walls, ceilings, and stairways of Flux Factory. Its gears, levers, servos, ball tracks, toy cars, cameras, catapult, and shredder have been busy, completing the machine’s task to create a living record of its residents. Against all odds, it’s operated flawlessly; we set out to make a machine to last a year, but we created a machine to last a million years.
Sadly, the end draws near. In the spirit of impermanence, unpredictability, and glorious failure we invite you to QUIT WHILE YOU’RE AHEAD, the final party celebrating the Exquisite Contraption. We’ll set off the machine throughout the night to the sounds of DJ Vinyl Richie and Lost Colony (DJ Great Boyfriend, DJ Corey Hell, and DJ SEAARCH) until everything devolves into a dance party.
The Exquisite Contraption was created by Stephanie Avery, Ranjit Bhatnagar, Jason Eppink, Justin Lange, Adrian Owen, Amelia Marzec, Alex Nathanson, Nick Normal, and Eric Petersen
