Description

World-renowned antiquarian horologist Brittany Nicole Cox will explore the diverse utilization of the machine in design through a selection of objects drawn from the collections of Cooper Hewitt and other Smithsonian institutions. Examples will range from a nineteenth-century singing bird box to the world’s first tuning fork watch as Cox makes metaphysical and material connections among the time-keeping machines of wonder and engineered mechanisms that were designed to produce illusion, animation, decoration, destruction, and more.


Reception: 6:30 p.m.
Lecture: 7 p.m.
