I really do wish I had thought of this. The video below is of some crazy fun art pieces by Juan Fontative. The pieces are constructed from discarded clocks, and push bike parts. Highlighting humming birds in flight and butterflies.
Each piece is a perpetually looping flip book with flying birds lifted from audubon guides and illustrations of butterflies found in various other sources. The works are part film, part sculpture, and part audio. Every aspect of the flip books are assembled by hand by Fontative, from the watch sized gears, to the clips, bolts, wormwheels and sprockets
The works are mesmerizing, and hypnotic. Perfect viewing for an afternoon in the Spring.
