Amazing wrist-worn kinetic sculptures: not your average wristwatches!

Сюжет на японском телеканале NHK

Я и Thomas Prescher

I can't understand much of what is said in this video, but it hardly matters because there are some amazing works of wrist-worn kinetic art. The first half shows what looks to be wristwatches made largely of wood and perhaps bone. The second half focuses on a maker of high-end watches featuring unique uses of the tourbillon. The final products are quite different, but equally amazing.

Animated flip book movie made with watercolor and clock parts

Check out this lovely animated/kinetic work by Juan Fontanive.

From the video description:

Juan Fontanive creates machines that combine moving images with clockwork mechanisms. His hand-made screens and metal structures are deeply influenced by the moving image — from shutters and reels to illusory flickering. Responding to the lack of movement found in our current electronics age, he is interested in actual movement in relation to virtual. His machines long to free images; they combine to form a medium in themselves exploring the vividness of living things.

Here is where you can see more animated art Juan Fontanive.

Variations on an automaton theme by Keith Newstead

More automaton goodness from one of the greats, Keith Newstead! If you think you've seen it all with the sheep and the wolf after the first 10 seconds, just wait. You will be treated to a classic variant and then a very new twist on the theme.

You can see more automata by Keith Newstead on his web site.
