Mechanical Objects With One and Only One Purpose: To Hold Themselves Up


Cavity Mechanism #14 w/ Glass Dome (2014)

San Francisco-based artist Dan Grayber specializes in creating mechanical objects that are intricately designed for one thing and one thing only: "to compensate for the complications created by its own existence," which in this case is to hold themselves up.

And hold themselves up gracefully is exactly what they did. Take a look:

Grayber described the pieces as "counterweight driven mechanism that wedges itself into the side of a cavity (the glass dome in this case), suspending itself.
