Year 3000... After a global catastrophe, the Earth is completely covered with water.
At great depths, a fishing angler found its refuge, once created as an experimental specimen of a biorobot capable of withstanding the great pressure of the water at the bottom of the ocean. In absolute darkness, a tiny orange light appears and a muffled sound of the propeller is heard. It is the Angler fish who tries to attract with its light those who survived.
The fish is completely handmade in the style of steampunk.
When turned on, the propeller rotates (rotation speed: 25 rpm.) in the fish, And the light installed in the angler rod glows. Power is supplied from a power bank (10,000 mAh), secretly installed in the body of the fish.
Kinetic sculpture "LighthousE-FisH"
Mechanical fish – a combination of sculpture and engineering. The interweaving of mechanics and art at the highest level of craftsmanship, filling inanimate mechanisms with life. The main gear moves through the linkage system, opening the aperture blades, the large and small gears rotate, and the central diaphragm opens. The fish comes to life, filled with light, giving inspiration, giving birth to new images, mesmerizing with the perfection of every detail. It is not like any other inhabitant of the ocean. The fish is a symbol of the eternal cycle of life – a beacon in our complex and troubled world, able to lead through time and space.
A steampunk kinetic lamp was first presented at the international exhibition in Moscow in 2012. There are only four copies of the sculpture in private collections today.
Lighthouse fish based on the classic iris diaphragm. The case is made of American walnut, trimmed with elements of copper, brass and leather. The gears of the diaphragm drive are covered with gold leaf.
Kinetic sculpture "CinemA-FisH"
A mechanical sculpture in the steampunk genre, an absolute image in depth that perfectly conveys the mood of the era of the birth of cinema. The end of the nineteenth century: the rapid development of mechanics, chemistry, physics, and the arts. A critical mass of knowledge has accumulated, and humanity simply had to give birth to something great, and it was born - the Great Dumb - “subsonic” cinema! It became the forerunner of modern cinema.
CinemA-FisH is a perfect embodiment of the image of cinema. The fish is silent and large-scale. Everything in it meets the assigned tasks: form, materials, parts, performance. The smooth movements of the body and all mechanisms create a special mood, fascinate with an impeccable game. The fish looks at our world through the camera lens, shaking her fins thoughtfully.
Rare lenses and a movie camera are used in manufacture of the fish. All parts are handmade of genuine leather, copper, bamboo, American walnut, oak, beech, linden.
