I am sitting enjoying a cup of tea after an enjoyable, exhausting weekend making part of a ‘What if Machine ‘ at Derby Silk Mill Museum. It was such a fun experience that I wanted to record it straight away. To explain, a What If Machine is based on the idea of creating a very complicated machine to cause something very simple to happen. These type of machines were drawn by Heath Robinson in England and Rube Goldberg in America. Neither illustrator made their machines but have inspired many to try. Wallis and Grommet films have some fantastically complicated ideas for achieving simple tasks.
