Number of the Machine – watch the video

RMIT Gallery debuted celebrated choreographer Antony Hamilton’s first ever work for an art gallery – Number of the Machine.

The performance based work, which ran for three weeks (19 May to 10 June) explored the complex relationship between humans and technology.

The time lapse video reveals how over four continuous hours each day, performers Melanie Lane and Amber McCartney laboriously assembled and disassembled a timber dwelling, moving it from one synthetic island to another.

Number of the Machine was created with the support of Darrin Verhagen, AkE Lab, City of Melbourne and Creative Victoria.
