Paul Spooner: Curious Contraptions

Environmental & Science Education, STEM, Art & Environment

Whole lot of physics, engineering, tinkering and art going in the work of automata artist Paul Spooner who makes "curious contraptions".

Here, a short video (3m 54s) video from the world-renowned Exploratorium (San Francisco) where he was a featured artist at the Curious Contraptions exhibition, Spooner talks about his work. He has a wonderful work shop. It looks well-used. A notebook is shown where you get a short glimpse of how he thinks these into existence. Very neat and I could be held captive paging through one of them.

I liked what he has to say about things breaking. That's what they do.
