Doktor A, a sculptor and painter, produced this steampunked version of Thing from the Addams Family for an Addams-themed exhibition at the Wootini Gallery in Carrboro, NC.
Neat. But Thimg emerged out of a box and wasn’t a free roaming being
In the TV show. In the movies, (thanks to the magic of CG), he was a free-roaming hand.
You could say that the computer gave Thing a hand. :D
This is why I can’t quit you, Steampunk.
Just when I’m ready to write you off, someone comes out with a thing of such forethought, such beauty, a thing entirely devoid of obvious parts from the Home Depot plumbing department, and I fall in love all over again!
Okay, that’s overstating it a mite, but this is pretty dang sweet.
Banana. I see no banana.
Don’t believe the hype. Steampunk is the white man (and woman) colonialist fantasy non par.
Does it work?
Otherwise – fail.
It looks like an art piece to me. There doesn’t seem to be tendons on the palm side so the hand should only be able to open.
I still approve.
can has please ?? eye could make akin with rc aircraft style servos hidden , please ?? ( yah right !! as if !! my most recent wood carving led to a chisel puncture , a hospital trip , and a web search for kevlar gloves !!) Can use for inspiration for daz studio renders maybe ?? ( fair use , eh ?? inspiration , not outright copy , quite , eh ?? ) thank you to the artist , the gallery , cory , and boing boing itself again !!
more steampunk awesomness.
I think I’ll start making complex electronics out of cookie dough. It will be less pointless than steampunk because at least the comedic junk I produce will be edible
