The Little Machine acknowledges that we are working on the lands of the Kaurna People, the traditional custodians of the Adelaide Plains. We respectfully acknowledge the Aboriginal and Stories Strait Islander peoples as the first inhabitants of the nation and pay our respect to Elders, past, present, and emerging.

The Little Machine is a labor of love by Michael Newall and Eleen Deprez, but without the love and support from our friends it would have never actualised. We wish to thank: 

  • Renew Adelaide (for giving us the space)
  • Linda Marie Walker (for allowing us our name after an article of hers, link)
  • Jingwei Bu (for encouragement, advice, and friendship)
  • Shirley Wu (for help, support, love, and food)
  • FELTies: for being an encouraging, inspiring, and patient bunch of great people 
  • Melanie Cooper (for telling me to go to bed!) 
  • Marian Sandberg (for making our vinyl)
  • Ray Harris for lending us the projector
  • Horace (for being an excellent puppy)
  • Sam Faehrmann (for the little cup out of which I drink my morning coffee)
  • Loren Orsillo: for helping install the first exhibition
  • Suzanne Close for donating us lovely beverages for our first opening
  • Shirley (again) for helping out at the bar
