Pierre Gordeeff’s The Built From Scratch Apparatus is the general title for a series of projects by Pierre Gordeeff initiated in 2006. Composed of parts salvaged from the trash, yard sales and equipment purchased from bankrupt hospitals, schools and factories, Gordeeff’s work has slowly evolved into an ornate sculpture and light show along with amplified moving parts fed into a mixer.

The Rhizome article also has some audio & video.
