James Carrigan's 'Machine 3.1' can be read as a maquette for a monumental sculpture, or as a proposal for an adventurous architectural intervention. 'Machine 3.1' fills the cavernous space of the former Wapping Power Station with a structure which repeatedly lowers and raises a cast of the entire floor from ceiling to ground.
'Machine 3.1', 2005, mixed media. Supported by Arts Council England and Complete Fabrications.
