New essays and images capture the quirky essence of Machine Project, where vacations for plants, concerts for dentists, and operas for dogs are a few of the typical offerings produced at the informal, non-profit, educational institution in Los Angeles. Designed in collaboration with Kimberly Varella, this book reflects on Machine Project’s ongoing artistic practice, featuring an extensive selection of photographs of past projects and documentation of new performance projects at the Tang Museum by Haruko Tanaka, Krystal Krunch, Hana van der Kolk, Carmina Escobar, Kamau Patton, Dawn Kasper, Joshua Beckman, Asher Hartman, and Chris Kallmyer among others.
