Tiny Mechanical Insects Made of Watch Parts 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.

A number of Gershenson-Gates' mechanical insect sculptures are available to purchase through his Etsy shop.
