'Machine' art installation with Doosan DX160W-5 wheeled excavator

Doosan is a proud partner of the ‘Signal’ Light Festival taking place this month in Prague in the Czech Republic. In its role as a leading manufacturer of construction machinery, Doosan has supplied one of the company’s DX160W-5 16 tonne wheeled excavators to form part of a new art installation that highlights the importance of responsible behaviour by humans when dealing with our natural environment.


The DX160W-5 wheeled excavator is the centrepiece of a new art installation called ‘The Machine’, which is intended to create a very strong ecological message and is the vision of Markéta Jáchimová, a young artist active in the Czech and Swiss artistic scenes. She has turned the excavator into a piece of art to express her feelings towards the extensive use of nature by humans.

Commenting on Doosan’s role in this established Czech festival, Kevin Lynch, Marketing Communications Manager for Doosan Infracore Europe, commented: “Doosan is one of the leading global producers of construction machines. We are proud to be able to cooperate with the Signal Light Festival and present our great machines in an unusual way. Sustainable development has always been important for Doosan and we are pleased that our 16 tonne excavator is supporting this very important message.”

The Signal Light Festival is a four-day festival of light art and emerging technologies held annually in October. It provides a platform for lighting designers from the Czech Republic and abroad to create lighting installations in streets and public spaces across the city, including several famous historical landmarks.

The Machine art installation is located at the entrance of the Industrial Palace of Výstaviště Praha, which is a venue for many of the business, industry and international trade fairs that take place in Prague.
