Automata!


If you plan to be in the Chicago area anytime from now to next March, check out the Cabaret Mechanical Theatre at the Museum of Science and Industry.

This temporary exhibit features a collection of 20 mechanical sculptures, called automata, which are intricately designed and full of humor. Their humor is brought to life by tiny cranks, pulleys and gears that allow the sculptures to move and take action.

Thanks to Jill Murtagh for sharing this!
