Mechanations by John Peralta: Exploded-Views of Machines

I'm a sucker for exploded-view drawings, so I'm utterly delighted to come across John Peralta's art series "Mechanations." Here, Peralta takes apart 20th-century objects - a Singer sewing machine, a Blickensderfer typewriter, a vintage Polaroid camera, and a silent film projector - and assemble them components by components into a suspended sculpture.

This one above is "Singer is Sewing Made Easy II, 2018": Singer Sewing Machine (c. 1910), wood, steel, latex, steel & fluorocarbon mono-filament, LED lighting
