Mud Machine #1

During the Mud Machine Wrekshop (2020), a temporary machine made of mud, sticks and recycled electronics was built as part of the Criw Celf visual art project for young people in Crickhowell UK.

The day included collection of natural materials on outdoor sites, dismantling of e-waste and construction of the large collaborative remote-controlled kinetic drawing and splashing Mud Machine.

The organiser Rachel Dunlop got enthusiastic feedback from the kids and found the activity a “thoughtfully designed workshop that incorporated sustainability, environmental issues and making together.”
