Machination

Darkly humorous and provocatively satirical, Cake Industries' performative mechatronic sculptures construct anachronistic narratives to reveal the struggles and absurdities of modern life.

Machination is a collection of their most recent works that marks a new direction in their ever-evolving practice. Human/object hybrid forms and collaged archival video combine to help forge a surreal world, offering a new perspective on our own world.

Included are works from Cake Industries' recently completed Voyages project based on the history, essence and cultural impact of historic amusement park Luna Park, Melbourne.

Regional Victorian based experimental artist duo Jesse Stevens & Dean Petersen have worked together since 2006 as permanent collaboration Cake Industries.
