Lost and Found

October 1, 2013


By Koseli. Discovered via our very own Cafe Johnsonia. Lindsey always seems to know just what I might fall for.

Where would be without a little quirk and eccentricity? Lost & Found is a short film capturing the world’s largest collection of automata at Lost Gypsy Gallery in New Zealand, and the life’s work of inventor and artist Blair Somerville. It’s a peek into a bizarre and fascinating world of extreme DIY and up-cycling.

Are you a tinkerer? A collector? Maybe a bit of a self-proclaimed…hoarder?

We need that kind of creativity in this world, to be sure! Loved it. My family and I saw automata in a couple museums in London this summer, but especially at the Victoria and Albert Museum of Childhood, which we so enjoyed!

Aw, I’m so honored you used it for your column! You have such an eye for the coolest and hippest things. :)
