Ghost Machine is an encounter between a person and a machine in a suburban shed. The machine reveals the story of a man haunted by an image that seems to shift and change as it sits on the wall of his study. In an attempt to locate the origins of the image he builds a viewing machine to finally confront it.

Ghost Machine is based on The Mezzotint (1904) by M.R James, retold as a suburban ghost story. It was part of SENSE at Mayfest in Bristol between 24th -26th May 2013.
