Please Sit on the Art   03.07.11

Please sit on the art. Yes, sit on the art. Climb and, dare I say, lay on the art. For weeks we have told you about the couchbleachers. This homage to the couch potato in all of us serves as seating and a sculptural backdrop to the many, many Machine Project events at SPACES. Now watch below as Machine Project artist Nate Page creates the couchbleachers.

What's next? Machine Project has sent another—yet another—talented artist from LA. Laura Steenberge will give a lecture on the History of Couch Furniture Saturday, March 12 at 7:00 p.m. This lecture will be an informal and funny look at couches and our relationship with them. So come by SPACES, pick out your favorite couch, listen, lounge and laugh with us and Laura. Laura Steenberge is a Musician, Linguist and science charlatan of sorts.
