my!machine

 

In the making of my!machine I feel like I am doing what I am doing no more no less

 

—-

when I look at my!machine.. I see the regular wheel turn.. I see the stochastic noise.. arms flailing.. it generates.. and I look at myself.. arm flailing.. trying to describe my!machine.. am I really controlling that flail.. or is it going to flail.. whether I like it or not.. that is what my machine and my!machine just do..

——

I started off thinking

And maybe still do.. that this machine has no function..

But it has longing

I see in it

In its components

Mother bird-like coat

Hanger parts

Longing

To reach

Baby bird

Fledgeling

Trying to fly –

Longing to persist

Is built into its

Architectural DNA
