Pioneering new ways to inspire wonder and imagination

Creative Machines is a multi-disciplinary design and fabrication firm that creates interactive exhibits, kinetic rolling ball machines, site-specific sculptures, and public artwork. We make objects and environments that encourage creativity, support interaction and transform spaces.

For 25 years we have been making dynamic experiences for museums, science centers, libraries, hospitals, university campuses, transit stops, art museums, children’s museums, trade shows, professional conferences, private residences, and public spaces across the globe. Regardless of the time of day, someone somewhere is enjoying our work.

We create

exceptional interactive experiences internationally —

from children’s museum exhibits to monumental kinetic public art and everything in between.

"Creative Machine’s varied body of work across North America demonstrates originality, creativity, and professionalism. They are passionate about their ideas and connections to the public and public spaces, and value citizen input. In their body of work, the viewer sees an understanding of scale, ability to both address and enhance site challenges, and produce quality artwork within the project budget."
