The Turtle and the Hare – Clockwork Art

Posted in National Art Center by tokyobling on April 25, 2010

This is the fantastic creation of Natsumi Honda (本田奈津美) from Tama Art University. A turtle and a hare created out of pieces of old watches, as exhibited at the National Art Center in Roppongi. The pieces are called “Time to be included”. I can’t find anything about this artist online, I wish Japanese young artists were better at marketing themselves!

    Fantastic! As soon as I saw the hare I also thought of the White Rabbit!
