Machaglyph is based on my observation that given time, all machines will find a way to express themselves. The Pin series examines the stories told by a set of bowling pin setting machines. These particular machines reside in a bowling alley in the basement of a church in downtown Kansas City Kansas. The smooth plastic covering of a bowling pin provides a wonderful canvas for the machines to scribe their time.
These images are actually a blending of expressions of five lanes at the bowling alley, each one with a different voice. I believe these expressions will some day be looked upon like Newspaper Rock in Utah. In todays topography it would be more like a comment board or chat room. The typography found on these recordings are richly dense with expression. In order to explore their stories more fully, I break it down into chapters to allow a closer look.
I believe these images are recordings of the earliest prehistory of machines. Before machines invented writing systems, created code. Not unlike how cave drawings only now being discovered, revealing humanity's earliest forms or expression.
P.S. I think Werner Herzog is a hero.
