DRAWING MACHINE 2003-2008-20...

The "book drawing machine" is a hand made wood table with a big paper roll attached at one end tailored to fit 6 people; it travels to different places to create illustrated one-of-a-kind books with different artists in spontaneous situations.

its an on-going project open to viewers participation and challenging assumptions of interaction, ownership, value and territory; it functions as a whole with its participants, he is the artist and the artists are his tools.

the amount of pages generated is determined by the days and the number of participants, the books are the product of a performance in public space.

starting in may 2003 in milan at salone satellite, hundreds of meters of drawings have been created so far in: berlin, geneva, barcelona, basel, new york, miami.
