#Repost @exploratorium・・・It's Tuesday—LET'S DANCE! #ContraptionTuesday⠀⠀We're featuring incredible automata sculptures from our #CuriousContraptions winter exhibition every Tuesday! This week's spotlight goes out to "Heron Dance" from Japanese-born Kazu Harada! Pro-tip: You can meet Harada at the Exploratorium this month. He's our Curious Contraptions Artist-In-Residence now through December 15—catch him while you can! Get tickets with link in bio. Want more Curious Contraptions? You can find more behind the scenes moments from the floor in our IG stories.⠀⠀Kazu Harada began making automata as a hobby. In 2006, he wrote to British automata maker Matt Smith asking if he could be his apprentice. Matt replied that the workshop was too small to have help but that Harada could certainly visit. So Harada traveled to Falmouth, England, and proceeded to visit Matt every single day. His pursuit paid off—he not only met numerous artists, he got the chance to hone his techniques working as part of Matt’s Fourteen Balls Toy Company.
