This is turning out to be a trying experiment. I’m creating a simple automaton but trying to work it out is hard work. I know how it should work and where things should go but I’d rather not glue things in place until I’m absolutely certain that it will work. As such I have sticky tape and blutack and all sorts of temporary adhesives flying around which don’t always hold things as securely as they should.
Most people spend the weekend socialising but not me. I’ve been sat in the studio poring over little pieces turning my little crank-handle exploring different options. Certain things may need to be attached with string whilst others can hover over gears and plates. I know what I want this to do, it’s just that I want it to be perfect.
This may take me a while yet to get it right.
