AMechanicalMind's Profile Picture
JM 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.

Absolutely love your gallery, beautiful and creative.  I'm particularly fond of the arachnids and insects. Oh and that jellyfish!
