Do you throw away your old watch once you get a new one? Justin Gershenson-Gates didn’t. He gave the recycled parts a new purpose. A very artistic one.
He turned the old watch parts into mechanical (or mech for short) sculptures, giving them the shape of different insects and arachnids. Needless to say they all look amazing and the attention to detail is outstanding. He named this project a mechanical mind and has been creating new mech sculptures since he began. All his creations are also available for purchase in case any of you fellow lazy penguins is interested.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at some of our favourite mechanical creatures!
