A Mechanical Mind

With cybernetics on the rise it's only right that we're curious as to what the future holds for insects and bugs alike, well designer Justin Gershenson-Gates shows us one of the many possibilities for the little critters.

Using dead watch pieces, A mechanical mind rearranges the bits and widgets into whimsical designs that bring a mechanical beauty to creepy crawlies. Rather than looking at the hard glass facade and metal housing of a watch, Gershenson-Gates likes to show the intricate allure of the smaller mechanical pieces that make a watch function.

Luckily these cute critters can be found on Etsy along with other artistic pieces; such as necklaces, gearrings and cuff links which all reflect the iconic 'Steam Punk' theme of metallic parts with a mechanical style.
