On considering the possibilities of the materials to hand, the two artists repurposed their environment in a literal manner, transforming the workshop table into an automated hurdy-gurdy. The Table Hurdy Gurdy generates a complex drone sound using a speed controlled disc which excites the strings. while two programmable ‘worker-puppets’ alter the pitch by fretting the instrument.
