Event description

Steven Durbach AKA Sid Sledge will perform Machine Assisted Street Poetry at Sydney Streets in Crown Street, this Saturday.  The peformance is presented by Poetry Sydney, sponsored by Fayroze Lutta.
A mid-afternoon Machine Assisted Street Poetry performance on Crown Street, Sydney Streets, is planned to be presented in the Poetry Sydney Festival in Surry Hills and the Eastside in November 2024.

A Stochastic Apparatus, an eccentric drawing machine that measures the streets with its chaotic motion drawing. It also includes ‘word traps’. Through this Sid, the artist and scientist, seeks to record the experience of the people they encounter. The Machine is constructed from turntables, bicycle parts and components from an old umbrella.

Steven Durbach, aka Sid Sledge worked as a scientist doing genetic research on bacteria and viruses from 1995-2008 before turning to art fulltime. Upon emigrating to Australia, he worked as an artist drawing on his knowledge and insights from the study of evolutionary theory to see what story that could tell in the arts. His principle media are drawing; kinetic sculpture and drawing animation. He has recently taken on a more research-based performative approach where during installations, performances and residencies, primarily at science institutions and other non-art spaces, he uses an

experimental approach to engage the audience and evolve his work.
