Mechanical box

Disciplines that are concerned with movement or time may utilize many forms of energy, either as a simple means to an end; a revolving stage and/or as a away of influencing an outcome.

Here are 4, illustrating direct, simple and sustainable methods – solar power, man power, rechargeable batteries and clockwork.

Despite the complex appearance, the four main elements are simply constructed using a combination of readily available components, with easily modifiable materials. The aim with this mechanical box is to illustrate and name the mechanisms and its parts; where sourcing materials is required a confidence in the correct terminology can be reassuring.
