Markets +

Applications

We have created facades, free-standing sculptures, kinetic ball machines, lighting installations, and interactive exhibits for a wide array of industries and markets. We are always looking for projects with different parameters than we’ve worked with previously in order to explore fresh concepts that are as exciting, relevant, and celebrated as our past projects. We believe one of our biggest strengths is our ability to work across many disciplines; engaging with diverse audiences daily.

Colleges &
Universities

Art on college campuses plays an important role in the physical experience of student life, wayfinding, and campus identity. Our pieces in educational settings echo the themes of the learning spaces they inhabit and the values of the people who inhabit those spaces. 

Children's Museums
& Science Centers 

Creative Machines is a premiere interactive exhibits fabricator in the US and overseas. We have successfully completed projects for many science centers and children’s museums such as; The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, Bishop Museum in Honolulu, Thinkery in Austin, Amgen Center in Los Angeles, Anchorage Museum, Inspiria Science Center in Norway, Cayton Children's Museum in Santa Monica, MOXI The Wolf Museum of Innovation and Exploration in Santa Barbara, Alqanatar Children’s Museum in Cairo, Science North in Ontario and others.

Hospitality 

Our work is suitable for a wide range of hospitality settings. As Above, So Below is located in the Four Seasons Hotel in Abu Dhabi and is just one of many celestial-themed pieces we have installed in their outdoor areas. Artwork in hospitality settings offers special experiences to visitors that are unique to your space. 

Tradeshows &
Conferences

We have created advanced ball machines and various types of interactive exhibits for tradeshows and professional conferences around the US. Our pieces are known to attract audiences and are ideal for driving traffic to a booth. Our work has appeared at ASH (American Society of Hematology), ASCO (American Society of Clinical Oncology), 2018 American College of Cardiology Conference, and Kidney Week 2018 & 2019.

Residential Spaces

People should love where they live, and we are here to commemorate the spaces people call home. Our pieces transform residential exteriors by providing community-inspired landmarks that operate from a distance while also rewarding close scrutiny over many visits. Our residential pieces are rooted in community and reflect the neighborhoods, values, or social/cultural significance of the spaces they inhabit. 

Healthcare

We believe that healthcare settings should be a welcoming and healing place. Creative atmospheres have long been explored by doctors and researchers as a valuable method for helping patients reduce stress and promote healing. We have developed several enjoyable approaches to bringing experiential art into healing spaces.

Lobbies &
Waiting Rooms

Research has proven that visitors in lobbies and waiting spaces that are enriched with artwork have a more pleasant waiting experience. Many of our projects appeal to adults and children alike and can be located in general waiting rooms, atria, or stairwells in a multitude of settings.

Libraries

We have created artwork for the interior and exterior of many libraries throughout the US. Our library pieces celebrate the wonder of literature, learning, and storytelling. The process of learning and forming mental connections has a certain vulnerability and it occurs more easily in an environment that is beautiful, immersive, and enveloping.

Malls &
Retail Spaces 

Artwork in shopping malls is a growing trend in public art. In the age of online shopping, physical retail spaces have to be more engaging than ever before; they must offer something additional to the typical consumer experience. Artwork in shopping centers is a proven means of increasing foot traffic for wayfinding, identity building, aesthetics, traffic control, general aesthetics, and entertainment. 

Parks

Sculptural artwork in metropolitan park settings is an essential component of community building. These pieces are important landmarks and offer countless ways to generate interest in a location and a connection to place. We use community engagement techniques to inform our artwork in these locations so that the local community is reflected in the finished piece.

Signage

Want to make a statement or create a photo op at the entrance to your space? We have you covered! We make an array of objects that inspire connection and interactivity that can be customized to your location and theme. Our sculptural pieces are more than just a statue; we create human-powered kinetic pieces, monumental signage, and interactive light pieces. Not only does artwork enhance the aesthetic and atmosphere of a public space, but also provides a way for visitors to spot your location by aiding in wayfinding. 

Outdoor Plazas

Create continuity from one location to another within your public plaza by utilizing a series of sculptures that tie separate spaces together.
