I’m really loving the monthly challenges from the Art Elements Team. They’re pushing me to be more creative and try out new ideas and I’m really pleased with where my work is going. This month was another brilliantly inspirational theme chosen by Lindsay – The Moon.
You may have seen recently that I’ve been getting back to making automata. I really love making kinetic art and this month I decided to try something a bit more ambitious. I started off with some mini moon animals. A hare, a fox, and a badger.
You can see them in action here…
This video was made for a new project I’m running as part of the Kickstarter Make/100 event. You can find out more about it and get yourself a mini fox, hare or badger automaton by backing it here… https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ahouseofwonders/make-100-automata
And for my second piece I decided to go bigger. This moon hare has multiple moving parts.
He leaps across the field as the moon waxes and wanes (sort of) in the back ground.
The cover for the moon has the hare constellation on it…
And with the added lights, you get a real feel of a starry moonlit night.
I’ve been having fun making videos, even if the free music is a bit dodgy, you can see this one working here…
Thanks to Lindsay for a wonderful theme, I’ve had loads of fun making moon themed creations! To see what the rest of the team and guests have made, follow the links below….
