This automaton was made to order for artist Tom Krasny (Concept and artistic direction: Tom Krasny, Mechanism design & build: Philip Lowndes)
as part of her body of work, Made In Uk, which was exhibited at the Glasgow School of Art Master of Fine Art programme degree show, June 2017.
Tom's project investigates the little known history of the wartime internment of German civilians at Knockaloe internment camp, and their unexpected connection to a piece of Charles Rennie Mackintosh furniture. For further reading and images of the installation please visit:
