If You Make Things, You Are My Brother: Keith Newstead

Keith Newstead makes... things.

Things like that have a name, of course. They're automata. It's the basis for the word automaton. There's a very long tradition of making things that do things without doing anything. They're just meant to capture the imagination in an ingenious way. Mission accomplished.

Looks like something Rube Goldberg would have done in his spare time.

But without and end result, other than entertainment.

Completely enchanting.
I wonder what the dimensions are.

My wife calls me automata once and a while. It's a compliment, right?

We have an art and arty-crafts store in my little town that has things of this sort, motorized, but rather less complex.
