A Curious Arcade

Interactive Installation - 2020

About

An interactive exhibit for audiences aged 8+

Be intrigued and delighted by peculiar storytelling machines in this century old arcade exhibit.

 

These elaborate machines are the creations of virtuosic Australian inventor Celeste Mackellan, an obscure figure who disappeared in 1929 along with the mechanical curiosities she built. 

 

Fascinated by Mackellan’s mysterious disappearance, an international consortium of collectors and creatives from Imaginary Theatre are slowly working to locate, extract and lovingly restore her machines to their former glory.

 

At A Curious Arcade, you can now experience these mechanical wonders as they tell timeless stories, a century old, that both surprise and delight.
