Launch Event “MR ARKWRIGHTBY Jo Fairfax

Last week was the launch of “Mr Arkright” the water and cycle-powered automatic drawing machine created by artist Jo Fairfax at Cromford Mills. 

I was there to document the event for the coordinators Beam who “commission and deliver transformative arts programmes to inspire communities and support the development of great places.”

This is an amazing interactive installation inspired by Sir Richard Arkwright however, instead of spinning cotton threads, this machine draws pictures on postcards which the participant can take home as a memento. 

The installation is commissioned by Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site, funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund and Arts Council England.
