Projects about trying

In stead of focusing on an action’s practical goal, these machines put forward the attempt that precedes such action, as well as its possible failure: a machine’s intention, which is initially simple, is constantly differed and never accomplished. Actions are no longer plain everyday tasks, but impossible horizons and complicated endeavors. These mechanical devices are basic and transparent: their precarious components reveal the possibility of an object existing on the verge of its functionality, while anticipating its own breakdown.
