Help build a magic forest at Machine (Echo Park, L.A.)


from Machine:

Short Version: Sara and Christy are turning Machine into a complete forest set, and we are having a volunteer meeting for those who want to participate this Thursday March 12th at 8:30pm.

Long Version: When we last saw Christy McCaffrey and Sara Newey they were making the Heavy Metal Gothic Arch at the LACMA show. They are returning to Machine this month to turn the entire gallery into a forest for a month, during which time we will be hosting all kinds of forest related activities. If you’re trying to imagine what that looks like, check out this here link…

This is a fairly epic project, even for us, and so we’re putting the call out to see if anyone would like to be part of making this happen. This is a great volunteer opportunity if you are interested in building very real looking fake forests, learning about how set design and set dressing works, and being part of a epic Machine Project project. The meeting to hear more about volunteering is this thursday night at 8:30pm, right here at Machine Project. Beer likely.
