Steampunk Addams Family Thing

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.

    1. 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

  1. 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.

  2. Don’t believe the hype. Steampunk is the white man (and woman) colonialist fantasy non par.

    1. 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.

  3. 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 !!

  4. 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
