Progress through collaboration


 

Over seven months at Bellevue Arts Museum, Future Machine transformed in collaboration with over a dozen local artists and makers, tradespeople, industry leaders, technology innovators, non-profits, and other creatives—demonstrating the potential for innovation through the blend of diverse voices.

The installation consisted of five distinct development phases in the unfolding of Future Machine: Idea, Fuel, Mechanics, Illumination, and Future.

Collaborators added their own unique contributions to each of Electric Coffin’s phases, a metaphor for the way unconventional collaborations work together to drive society forward.
