“The Tipping Point: The Chocolate Extravagancy” – Art Installation of A Rube Goldberg Machine

22 Jan, 2019

Gallery by the Harbour at the same time hosts an exhibition with “The Tipping Point: The Chocolate Extravagancy”, a Rube Goldberg Chocolate Machine installation. Custom-made by British installation artist Nick Runeckles, the Rube Goldberg Machine is a massive chocolate art installation that turns a simple task into a fun and lively process through a clever chain of reactions.

“The Chocolate Extravagancy” Machine kicks off with a spiral lift of numerous marble balls through a range of percussion instruments, creating a harmonious symphony. Through a peculiarly complex journey, the balls go into a waterwheel which rotates to grate and shave the chocolate. Visitors can also pull on the interactive “Roller Coaster Marble Ride” panel and send the balls on a musical journey. The gallery also features a “Chocolate Dominos” photo zone, taking visitors deep into the amazing moments of the chain reactions inside the Rube Goldberg Chocolate Machine.
