Title: The Heart Machine

Year: 2011

Automata enthusiast and friend of Laikingland Sergio Pinese created an automata making contest called Crankahead. With the competition deadline and Valentine’s Day fast approaching I thought it would be fun to make a piece for both occasions and the result was The Heart Machine. It’s an alarming little machine to demand the attention of the one you love.

Size: 21cm /9" high.

Materials: Powder coated steel base, brass heart and mechanism, silicone springs.

Edition: 100
