The result was his construction of instruments that ranged from the weird to the wonderful.

Led by artist and researcher Dr Laura Woodward, students from Sculpture & Spatial Practice at the Faculty of VCA and MCM, and Mechanical Engineering at the Melbourne School of Engineering, combine their talents to produce works inspired by Grainger’s roving imagination. Step inside the University‚Äôs Ian Potter Museum of Art to encounter kinetic mechanical instruments, interactive sculptures and responsive installations that are by turns playful, confronting, tender and experimental. In sum, a grand assemblage of moving parts as complex and surprising as the mind of Grainger himself.
