...In an age that increasingly exists online and in virtual spaces, Ex Machina invites viewers to consider the role of the physical machine as artwork, only truly experienced in the flesh. Ex Machina explores contemporary Australian kinetic artwork, and how machines are not only a tool, but artworks in their own right...

In the early 1990s Arthur Wicks built his 'Armoured Peace Car' which which he drove through parts of Europe.  Images of the artist cycling through the streets of Amsterdam, and the deserted streets and squares of Berlin, can be found on his website:  arthurwicks.com
