Autoeromatons

HeyHeydeHass makes beautiful art object machines.

When they started working on this project they had just two requirements: the automata they were about to produce had to perform a sensual act when being handled – in a safe for work way. They also needed to be simple, beautiful objects when in rest, made from high quality materials. Sexy alternatives to all those Executive Ball Clickers.

Team HeyHeydeHaas does the majority of the work on the Autoeromatons in house and by hand. From figuring out the mechanics of the automata and casting bronze at a local foundry, to polishing till you drop. They are a thing of beauty.

In this CreativeMornings talk Todd Henry speaks on how at the end of your life you’ll point to a delta, a sum total of change that exist in this world because you were alive. And how the choices we make every day on where we want to put our focus, assets, time and energy ultimately determine the body of work that we build.
