The Appearance Machine is a perpetual animation device. It slowly grinds away, manufacturing scatological dramas from wrappers, packing material and other debris salvaged from its immediate surroundings. These objects form the set and become characters of a self-evolving, televisual world that is delivered to select locations via live feed from a broadband Internet link.

Game Girls ―Judy Cheung, Paula Gignac, Nancy Paterson, Cheryl Sourkes and Carla J. Wolf. Curated by Kathleen Pirrie Adams
Game Girls is an exhibition of interactive installations, CD-ROMs and video projections that play fast and loose with the usual rules of the game.

Remembering in states of you,
the feeling of your bright light sound wave,
like a shaking timber.
Together we make a song to filter light and bathe.
Changing, resting, disappearing.
