KAYOKOYUKI is pleased to announce the group exhibition "New Rube Goldberg Machine" with the artist ERIKO MUKAI, PUGMENT, KENTA COBAYASHI and HARUCHI OSAKI, curated by RIKU IIOKA.
A Rube Goldberg machine is a name of the apparatus which acts as a substitution for daily tasks through a chain reaction of a contraption as drawn by Rube Goldberg, a cartoonist as well as an inventor, during the 1910s. The mechanism incorporates humans and animals and illustrates in a delusional fashion the modern society where mechanization is constantly progressing. Through a chain reaction of ecological reflex responses and physical phenomena which are accompanied by accidentalness, daily tasks such as “open an umbrella” and “keep reminding me to deliver a letter to my wife” are substituted in a circuitous way.
