Chicago-based artist

Justin Gershenson-Gates, aka A Mechanical Mind, creates tiny steampunk insects by carefully soldering together gears, springs, and other watch parts.

The mechanical bugs, many of which Gershenson-Gates can balance on just his pinky finger, are miniature, multi-legged creatures that each take the artist several hours to complete.

Like a robotic army of creepy crawlers, the metallic mites invoke a sense of mechanical technology come to life. There’s something altogether exciting, intriguing, and frightening about the collection that screams “science fiction horror film.” You can hear their metallic little legs feverishly clicking as though they’re scurrying across a room just by looking at them.

A number of Gershenson-Gates’ mechanical insect sculptures are available to purchase

through his Etsy shop.
