Nik Ramage

The machines Nik Ramage creates forego utilitarian functionality in favour of futility, uncertainty and fragility. These contraptions are assembled from components that were designed for another purpose, often utilizing elements that are slightly damaged or completely run down.

Some of the machines work relentlessly at their task like an almost useful tool, while others have more hesitant actions and seem to struggle under their own load. This is technology from the shadows, absurd, paradoxical and at times completely comical.

The MAD Museum will be closing at 4pm on Thursday 21st September 2017.
