AMechanicalMind's Profile Picture
Justin Gershenson-Gates
Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts
United States
Chicago, IL I am Justin Gershenson-Gates, the thinker and assembler behind A Mechanical Mind. The grandson of a railroad man, the son of a gearhead, my life has been filled with all things mechanical. As a child, I would take my toys apart in order to see how they worked, but was never able to put them back together again. Now, I take dead old watches from the top drawers of the world, and rearrange their bits and widgets into whimsical designs.

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. Please contact me at or with any questions you may have.

I am completely amazed by your work, these little clockwork creatures are unusual and brilliant, when I saw the first one I expected them to be larger than they actually are until I saw them scaled against your hand. Added to my devWatch!

Your stuff is so amazing :D
I just wish I could create such things too. I had an idea a couple of days ago, of a small hedgehog with needles for the spikes, so that you could put colorful thread through the little holes of the spike tops. It would look so pretty :3
