Chris Bathgate’s self-transforming elf machines

Two example works from Baltimore artist Chris Bathgate.

Boing Boing’s Rob Beschizza put it well when he said, of Baltimore machinist-artist Chris Bathgate, “his works look like randomly-generated parts for high-performance machines that don’t work in our universe.”

Maybe they’re parts of the factory that makes monoliths.

You can see more of Chris’s work in MAKE Volume 25.
