Machine Room: a research collaboration, 2003 – 2006, arose out of a series of conversations between members of the group about painting and its contexts.

The project aimed to throw into question the mechanisms and technologies of painting, focusing on an idea of painting as a makeshift, contingent structure, constructed from the interplay and exchange of different histories and working approaches.

In September 2006 CRATE, Margate, hosted the group for a two-week residency and an event documenting the collaboration and launching the Machine Room website.
