The simple goal of this ingenious device is the restoration of Peace and Progress. A Rube Goldberg style contraption built collaboratively out of objects, ordinary or extraordinary, which symbolize our own American stories, our own beliefs about the “American Dream”, as well as stories that have been told to us. These may include pictures, household objects, symbols, tools, trinkets, toys, games, books, flags, and simple machines.
People can bring together their objects, stories, and ideas, or help with putting these things together to create the American Dream Machine. It will double as an installation when not in use.
