Beckett Machine
Beckett Machine is a project by Spencer Roberts that endlessly performs the text of Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot. The stage is comprised of a small Liquid Crystal Display and a series of Light Emitting Diodes. The text of the play passes mechanically across the surface of the screen. Its exposition is interrupted by standardised pauses for punctuation and for the designated periods of silence that are indicated in the text.
