Graceful ballerina automaton by artist Colin Neu is powered by a Gramophone motor

Image of ballerina automaton

Artist Colin Neu has finished a new piece, this one featuring a ballerina on a rotating platform. As the platform turns the figure raises and lowers her head, arms and one leg, gracefully striking different positions. As with many of his works, this one is powered by an old Gramophone motor. The dancing figure is made of wood, while the mechanism is made of various metals including brass. Another fine piece!

The aritst's contact information can be found at the end of the video.
