The Reversing Machine

Sam Belinfante and Simon Lewandowski
The Reversing Machine (A Theatre of Kairos and Chronos) 2012

The Reversing Machine is a time-setting mechanism which can be connected up to different machines, acting as a drive shaft to power them to run forwards, then backwards. First shown at Art Laboratory Berlin at part of the exhibition ‘Fantastic Time Machines’ 2012, where it powered machines such as a turntable, a drawing machine and a slide projector. The work will be shown at the new Project Space Leeds (soon to be the ‘The Tetley') in December 2013, for which the artists are looking for musicians to submit palindromic or bi-directional compositions.
