Curious Contraptions - Small Machines of Love and Mystery

SEE EVENT DETAILS
November 16-January 28, 2018

Exploratorium, Pier 15 (Embarcadero at Green Street)
Included with museum admission. All ages.

Explore small, surreal worlds at Curious Contraptions, a temporary exhibition of the charming, often hilarious mechanical sculptures known as automata. Like complex mechanical toys, these whimsical machines are brought to life by intricate arrangements of handmade cams, cranks, and other simple mechanisms. Each sculpture performs an absurd miniature drama reflecting its maker's worldview and sense of humor. Take a look at their exposed inner workings and investigate the low-tech mechanisms that make these automata move.

This year, Curious Contraptions features the varied viewpoints of artists including Carlos Zapata, Paul Spooner, Keith Newstead, and Fi Henshall, plus artist residencies with Zapata, Hernan Lira, and Noga Elhassid.

Teacher or Student 18+: USD 24.95
