Nano Animals of Justin Gershenson-Gates
Justin Gershenson-Gates uses his Mechanical Mind to create designs, sculptures, jewelry and maybe even new species! His animal art pieces are minuscule masterpieces. This first animal image is a creature from Gates' own imagination, inspired by characteristics of multiple animals.
Look at the above image and compare it below with some reference for scale. Now, tell me you are not impressed!
The legs of these spider designs below are made of up 48 different watch parts, dead automotive light bulbs, and soldered together into a very fragile, very beautiful piece of animal art.
One of the most fascinating series Gates made out of his salvaged watch parts are the bird art designs he has invented and formed into a unique kind of jewelry. There are more examples of this on his gallery, and are also available on his personal website for sale if you like them.
This dragonfly art is only 37 millimeters wide and only 27 millimeters tall. Gates used brass gears for the wings and a watch plate with a winding stem as the body, with small ruby watch gems for eyes.
