During the last week of my program, one of the automaton artists visited for a week to build a piece that will live permanently in the Exploratorium. My instructor, Lori, is a Cabaret Mechanical Theater groupie, so she brought us to the workshop to see the work-in-progress. That morning, a bunch of paper limbs lay scattered on the table in the workshop. By afternoon, I peered in through a workshop window to see the limbs assembled and the angel slowly floating up and down and tilting its head back. My friend and I were waved into the workshop to take a closer look (they saw our noses pressed against the glass). While we were in there, the artist began attaching wings to the angel's back. Incredible! Posted by Hello
