The Influence Machine: a conversation
University of Edinburgh
23 November 2016
A conversation between myself, Tony Oursler and James Lingwood about The Influence Machine, an internationally acclaimed immersive outdoor sculptural experience by artist Tony Oursler, commissioned by Artangel. Described as a ‘holographic model of human desire and dread’, The Influence Machine captures the haunting atmosphere of magic lanterns, Victorian light shows, camera obscura and parlour tricks, while embracing the fully networked, digitally-assisted future of image and identity production.
