Project summary:

'Mapping The Compal Galaxy' is an investigation into the physical, electronic and social mechanisms of a 1970's talking sewing machine.  

Working with text, drawing, animation and audio, to map and catergorise the Compal Galaxy's processes and functions.

Use of the University's digital media workshop and print rooms will allow me to pursue this work and finish a website presentation of the research.  

Exploring the gap that exists between language and meaning, multiple systems of communication and the absurd in the everyday.
