Nuisance Machines

The nuisance machines are a series of speculative devices, aimed at forming interaction through the creation of surreptitious social networks. The machines trigger the formation of incidental groups, groups formed through the action or reaction of people to an unexpected instance or experience, characterized by the fact that its members may not have originally set out to become a part of the group, rather that they ‘fell’ into it, seemingly through proximity or chance. The machines explore three methods of group formation; the speculative, through the use of the Stainer, the physical; through the Staller, and non-physical; through the Whisperer
