Engineered Equanimity: The Machines of Steven Pippin

  • 18 November 2017 — 3 February 2018 *on now

Engineered Equanimity showcases the technological manipulation of one of Britain’s most inventive artists Steven Pippin. An engineer by training, Pippin switched to art in the late 1980s. His breakthrough came by turning everyday items, such as washing machines, into pinhole cameras.
Operating since at a self-made juncture – where art, invention and engineering meet – his ambitious experiments, playful exploits and hybrid machines take in the rapid worldwide technological and scientific advancements of our age.
The exhibition offers audiences new perspectives on everything from Newtonian mechanics to the production of renewable energy, re-framed with an autonomous spirit of inquiry. It includes Pippin’s recent and significant work Ω=1, a system that can balance a pencil indefinitely, and traces the history of Pippin’s machine manipulation.
Engineered Equanimity reveals a generation dragged from the analogue of television sets and fax machines into the fast paced environments of our computer century.
Exclusively for Bath, the exhibition features a prototype which investigates static electricity capture via wind turbines. Pippin and his collaborator Steven Davis will be in situ testing this project throughout, often in collaboration with University of Bath researchers.

Demonstrations of specific works available on request.
