Neil Salley's


Musée Patamécanique

Neil Salley, Musée Patamécanique :: Exhibit / Installation :: by appointment (BRISTOL, Rhode Island, USA)

"'Patamechanics is a method of discovering/manifesting artifacts' much like those of the ancient Wonder-rooms of old, 'which symbolically attribute their properties described by their virtuality to their lineaments.' A Patamechanical artifact or device is displayed with the intention of validating the existence of a realm or entity 'supplementary to this one; or, less ambitiously, describes a universe which can be - and perhaps should be - envisaged in the place of the traditional one.' The primary goal of the Musée Patamécanique is to explore the meaning and possibilities of Patamechanics [...]" [1]

You are invited on a curatorial tour of Musée Patamécanique, a hybrid institution; part museum, part laboratory, part carnival for the senses.
