Scroll Machine

With my future plans of creating a live performance I needed to create a way of viewing the  entire 20m of music scrolls. This meant that I would have to make some kind of machine that would wheel along the entire length of the work.

Drawing on the basic layout of a cassette tape I built two wooden spools the same hight of my scrolls and mounted them half a meter apart on a length of wood. By placing large elastic bands on the top and the bottom both spools are able to spin at the same time.


I originally planned on having that machine motorised but the process was too complicated and I am lucky to be able to get a volunteer to more the machine during the performance.
