Her work suggests delicate futuristic arthropod junk robots, which in our crew is hard not to like. The exhibition’s title, Wolkengraber, means “cloud digger.” Via Cool Hunting.

    Wow. This looks really interesting. It looks like a machine available in olden days. Damn good. It remembers me the machine used in the film “around the world in 80 days” :).

    Sorry, but “Wolkengraber” means “clouddigger”.
