Enquiry Machines (EMs)
Enquiry Machines are collaborative experiments in design thinking and critical making. We make things to make sense of things.
– render the enquiry process visible and material
– are not prototypes or models but rather instruments of enquiry designed to help explore social worlds
– exaggerate hands-on, messy, inventive material and performative engagement
– materialise the limitations and mechanics of enquiry
This means they fail, and often. To reveal the faulty mechanics of enquiry is itself an outcome that an enquiry machine produces.
