Melvin the Machine


In this movie filmed in a warehouse on the outskirts of Eindhoven, the ringing of an alarm clock triggers a chain of events that opens umbrellas, spins paper windmills, starts a fire and releases a set of parachuting toy animals (+ movie).

  • Fantastic installation (Melvin the Machine) !
    The worthy successors of Peter Fischli and David Weiss (Der Lauf der Ding)

    I don't really get the point?

    Give me Fischli/Weiss or Roman Signer any day…

    Joined a perfomance of Melvin last year during the DDW 2010. Brilliant machine, with a lot of humor and 'self-communication' about it's performance on the web.
    Go Melvin, go Melvin!
