Working out the Mechanism

After spending the afternoon with cardboard, string, masking tape and fishing wire, I have worked out the movement and got most it moving. Now: the devil dances in the cupboard and opens the door, Mr Punch closes the door and hits himself in the eye, the crocodile chews, the policeman puts his whistle to his mouth and points away from the door and the flower lifts the child to look out of the window. Can't wait to start painting!

Can't wait to see this in operation, it must be your most complex to date.

Was thinking of you yesterday when I came across the work of Kevin Titzer. Although he is not making automata, his sculptures have a look that I think you would relate to. This looks so complicated to me but I know you will make it work!
