Enquiry Machine #1: Hackney

Enquiry Machine #1 was assembled and put to work in a Hackney street in East London. It was designed to (and sometimes does) explore the conversation of mechanics and the mechanics of conversation. It attracted the attention of passers-by who enquired as to its point and purpose. While some were interested in the workings of the dynamo light, others wanted to know the origin of its bicycle materials. One man assumed we were making some kind of political/environmental statement. Another thought we were busking. A meat worker, in blood stained white work coat with a gutted pig carcass over his shoulder stopped between the butcher shop and his van to watch. A car driver slowed and pointed us out to her child passengers. Three men stood smoking nearby and chatted about us. Others hurrying from or to the bus with full plastic shopping bags were not interested at all. Immune to strange happenings in Hackney they just walked past. Surprisingly, no-one tried to steal our camera.

Enquiry Machine #1 is an attempt to explore the conversation of mechanics and the mechanics of conversation. It is an assemblage of human, non-human and conceptual components:

– the bodies of 2 human operators
– cable ties
– parts from 5 discarded bikes
– curiosity about the material nature of enquiry
– sticky tape
– the melted wire of a mig welder
– concern within science and technology studies about the flattening of process
– a dynamo light
– brakes
– an interest in the making of mess
– a bell
– a horn
– pens
– bull clips
