The Mechanics Institute
Sanné Mestrom & Jamie Hall
The Mechanics Institute brings together the core elements of our individual practices by addressing three key themes:
1. An interrogation into the process of art making,
2. Questioning notions of authorship,
3. Testing notions of value.
TMI’s collaborations – which to date have included artists, peers and interdisciplinary academics across Melbourne’s RMIT, Monash and VCA universities – take the form of creative projects, reading groups, workshops, conversations, writings & diagrams, in-situ studio & gallery critiques and regional & inter-state ‘art camps’.
