I get many requests in person and online to make plans for some of my more complex automata projects available. Documenting the steps involved has always seemed like a daunting task to me.
I have decided to give it a try using video as the primary medium for instruction as an accompaniment to printed plans. So I am in the beginning of building and filming the building the project that has had the most request for plans - "The Waiting Room". To preserve the uniqueness of the original piece I will reconfigure it as "The Doctors Office" with a few modifications the in characters.
The impatient skelton will be part of the new project. I've been busy building and filming the building of a new version. Right know I am editing the video which will likely end up in excess of one hour, and that is just for him!
I'll push through to the finish and assess the complete project and how ultimately I might make it available.
For now here is the new "Bones".
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
