Have you noticed that the more life apparently gets better, the more things seem to break down? Vending machines, ticket machines, cash machines and computers all conspire to refuse us their automated service - spitting-out notes and stealing change. It doesn't end there, public toilets are locked or broken and automated turnstiles simply refuse to let us pass. Surprisingly this mechanical entropy seems to have gone unnoticed. However, through the course of a few months armed with a camera phone I recorded the mechanical revolt that is gradually gathering pace all round us. This book is a salute to brokenness and the signs that announce it. Exhibited at Closure 2009, The Gallery, University of Northampton, UK, October-November 2009.
