The Clockwork Quartet

Author: | Categories: Art, Music, Steampunk No comments
I have legions of minions (both cybernetic and meatiform) so if you say ‘steampunk’ anywhere on the interwebs I’m liable to pop up in UR LJ or UR Flickr within hours.  Such was the case this morning when I discovered this marvellous machine built by banjo player Will Segerman

TechnOccult inteviews wunderkammer artist AlexCF: I guess it all started with this little box, called “The Vampire Legacy Case” about a 14th century aristocratic vampire, the last rites and possessions of this vampiric lord.

Just looking at her work, I wish i was able to experience it first hand- These formidable, unwieldy, solid hunks of steel
