Mechanical Insects Made from Old Watch Parts and Discarded Objects

 

The son of a gearhead and grandson to a railroad man, artist Justin Gershenson-Gates has always been surrounded by all things mechanical. A self-proclaimed tinkerer and disassembler, Justin now takes apart old watches and other discarded objects and turns them into recycled mechanical sculptures and jewellery. As he states on his profile page:

“My aim is to show the beauty of the mechanical world, a place generally hidden from the public behind metal and glass. My pieces display the more delicate and ephemeral side of gears, rather than the cold, hard factory feel they normally portray.”

 

Online Justin is better known as A Mechanical Mind with dedicated followings on deviantART and Facebook. All of his work is also made available for purchase through his Etsy store.
