Felix’s Machines (Installation)
Felix Thorn builds machines for art installations, live performance, commercials, theatre accompaniment, and shop window displays. Felix specialises in de-constructing real-life objects and creating new experiences with movement, music and light.
Felix’s Machines were initially conceived in an experiment aiming to facilitate live music by transforming sound into a three-dimensional visual show. As an ongoing project, the music-performing machines built by Felix do not intend to match human potential. Instead they exist to test the advantages of mechanical instruments alone.
Having been installed in diverse environments such as galleries, universities, festivals and nightclubs worldwide the configuration of instruments can be adapted to take advantage of their surroundings.
