Machine Project Benefit

One of my favorite organisms in Los Angeles is Machine Project, a kind of hacker’s art gallery, or as they put it “a non-profit community space…investigating art, technology, natural history, science, music, literature, and food.”

We’re holding a benefit at Mister Jalopy’s place, and it promises to be a wonderful event. We’d love to see you there!

On November 7th, Mister Jalopy’s personal 4000 square foot studio will be host to the first Machine Project benefit.
Proceeds from this once-a-year event will enable Machine Project to continue welcoming any and all to free Machine public events in 2010. Tickets start at $75 for members, or $100 for non-members, with a Benefactor level ticket available for $250.

With over 20 participating artists, technologists and musicians, the 2009 Benefit will pack a month’s worth of events into a single intimate evening. What to expect? Opportunities to steal art from a laser-protected, action movie-style set, wager on microscopic slime mold races, try your hand at gold panning to prospect for real gold nuggets, stay late to huddle around the firepit to make ‘smores, partake from the amply stocked wine and beer bar, have a wood-fired pizza from an on-site brick pizza oven, enjoy music from four different acts, replace your old Getty Museum fake ID, participate in head-to-head speed soldering contests and eat noodles supplied by Kwong Dynasty Noodle Cart.
