PROJECT CONNECT: Confuse-a-tron Seeks Venues

The above video is from LA’s Machine Project and documents their recent event, Confuse-a-tron at the Berkeley Art Museum. In its Berkeley incarnation, the event included workshops in multiple, distinct, and previously unrelated areas of practice: Tranimal Makeup, Plant Cloning, Music from Melons, and Kimchi production.

As this represents an infinitely adaptable model, Machine is seeking partner organizations to host new iterations of the Confuse-a-tron project around the country. If interested in presenting Confuse-a-tron at your space please contact Machine’s director, Mark Allen to learn more.
