DEM III - September, 2005
The Rubber Monkey Puppet Company is once again hosting its Deus Ex Machina
festival. This year the festival will be held in Chicago at The Peter
Jones Gallery, 1806 West Cuyler, in Chicago.
What is Deus Ex Machina?
Deus Ex Machina is the original festival of machines, robots, contraptions,
gadgets, and devices creating art and music on their own.
Started in the Autumn of 2000, DEM has been the testing ground of over
30 inventors and artists, and over 50 different contraptions.
Who Can Enter?
There is a call for people to get involved! We are looking for Artists,
Tinkerers, Gadgeteers, Contraptionists, Inventors, Plumbers, Electricians,
Musicians, and Anybody who is curious. All ages are welcome.
What Kind of Machine?
Pretty much anything goes. It can be as complex as a programmable robot
or as simple as a spinning wheel with paint dripping on it. Check out
the Past Shows page for some ideas.
More Than Just
