Latest Steampunk project, finished.

'The Forgotten'. An android head, long lost in a laboratory, yet still AWARE.......

Made from all 'found' objects, not least, the antique laboratory cabinet by Enterprise Gogit of Paris.

The head started with a brass mask, copper garden sprinkler reservoir, leather, rubber and copper parts.
Night lit, by a flickering LED light (see video) on https://www.facebook.com/All-Steamed-Up-936518483101617/?ref=aymt_homepage_panel.

The cabinet is 32cm tall x 28cm wide.

Very lovely, in a disturbing sort of way

Reminded me of "Professor Dowell's Head" novel by A.Belyaev

Forgotten, neglected, for who knows how many years, but painfully aware of the passage of time... It must be quite insane by now.

Marvellous as usual! The Eye has it again- a certain taint of terror...  Shocked

Certainly quite insane by now.

Absolutely fabulous as usual sir.

Love the antique box and the head is great.

My only slight niggle is, when the head is in the box even with the light on it kinda gets lost and too obscured, doesn't really do the work involved justice.

Maybe a few subtle backlights inside the box to illuminate the subject when the door is shut?  Undecided

Please don't take this as criticism, just a personal observation, I love all the work you create!

Thanks for the kind words. 

I guess the whole object of the piece, was to show off the box, which in itself is a real steam relic, using steam as the heat travelling within the twin copper walls, with just a HINT of what lurks within, so lost and obscured is exactly what I was aiming for!.

The head is minimal in construction, and should really not leave the box, in daylight conditions, the mask stands out really quite well, and at night, I tried back lighting too, but it looked far too cosy Smiley

Cool, I like the sense of, just being able to see something, that draws the viewer closer to, and examine, and see a head.

Love it!!! (the twins will be my favourite for a long time, they were just outstanding

That is just fabulous and indeed, the look in its eye is perfection for the piece.

I was just imagining if one did this and then, as one finally approached to the point where the head could be properly seen, the eye blinked...

Yours,
Miranda.

The yellow lamp- apologies if it is not - shining only on the eye in one of the pictures above seems effective.
Perhaps that is the best lighting style for this piece.

Thanks HP, yes indeed, the lamp is yellow, and flickers constantly.  This adds an eerie look, especially at night!.
I made a very short video of it here....
