This special exhibition features more than 20 charming and often hilarious mechanical sculptures known as automata. Their whimsical characters are brought to life by intricate arrangements of hand-made cams, cranks, and other simple mechanisms.
Each sculpture performs an absurd miniature drama, often reflecting its maker’s dark and very British sense of humor. Exposed inner workings encourage visitors to investigate the low-tech mechanisms used to make these automata move.
