The Dream Machine – 10×10 exhib for Design Manchester

POSTED ON: BY Angela Roche

There’s been a lot of laser cutting at DBD lately.

Last month Rob created the latest installation for Fred Aldous’ #makeanything window display. This month it was my turn, having being asked to contribute to 10×10; the exhibition that kicks off Design Manchester.

The theme this year is ‘The Science of Imagination’, so when John from Instruct / Design Manchester asked me a couple of months ago if I’d like to get involved I jumped at the opportunity to have some fun.

6 days before opening night I began building The Dream Machine (a working title that kinda stuck). 50 hours later and just hours before launch, the machine was completed. Getting it in the taxi is a whole other story!

GF Smith sponsored the event so I go my mitts on plenty of Colorplan in a variety of lush colours.
