Henri BergsonTime machine

Time machine, originally uploaded by moonwild.

This is my second assemblage inspired by the Time and Freedom philosophy by Henri Bergson. I used tins, hinges and many pieces from dismantled clocks and little machines to create a kind of time machine.

Henri peers from a glass window. He has mica eyes and the window is embellished with words from his book. The bottom tin contains the clock mechanisms, wires a glass orb window, a tiny light bulb incased in a hand carved rock like formation on top is a red letter dice topped with a bottom laced with red string that wraps around the piece and ends in a fringe of springs and screws hanging from the bottom.

This piece has a lot of tiny detail. Check out the extra pictures to see some of them.
