Serial Space is not your usual deathly quiet, hermetically sealed, white cube gallery; it is somewhere new things happen, where strange and wonderful things that didn't exist before come into being. It's an art space where boundaries merge and genres are thrown into question. And in the crush for affordable studio, exhibition and performance space in Sydney, it's a place where artists are given free reign to experiment and, if need be, fail. The ability to fail and experiment is more crucial than it sounds, because it is a precursor to creative growth, and a necessary one at that. In short, it is often simply too expensive to fail in Sydney; we run the risk of pricing creativity out of the picture.

Serial Space's latest project is Time Machine, a wave of performances, exhibitions and participatory nights by experimental artists who create live excursions into sound- and time-based art. It's an adventurous program across several inner city venues, and here are a few highlights:

- A workshop on how to build your own solar-powered analogue synthesiser by Samuel Bryce.
- The Great Man Debate: That men can't be feminists.
- Six degrees of Ned Kelly, a performance lecture about the number of degrees of separation between Ned Kelly and you by Melita Rowtson.
- Video Hits: three musos and three video artists rip apart and reconstruct the conventions of the music video. Includes Marcus Whale of Collarbones and Oscar Slorach-Thorn of oscar+martin.
- Step Back dance party of electronic glory with Cliques (a duo featuring one half of Seekae), Tyson Koh, Four Door and Tuff Sherm.
- The official Time Machine bar at Freda's Bar & Canteen (107-109 Regent St, Chippendale) with daily drinks specials.
