clockwork thief by ariscene clockwork thief by ariscene
"No one knows where they originally came from...Their glowing heads make the city look eerily festive every time they roam the rooftops. They are thieves. They crave all things shiny and intricate, from brooches and coins to pens and lighters. They don't speak, but they seem to understand human languages -mostly curses-. I always thought they steal stuff to make more of their kind, you know. Under the city, where they sleep during the day.."

I may have seen this somewhere else, so I don't claim any originality...but umbrellas look like spiders :)
So, I disemboweled an old umbrella, a '90s tv set and a cassette recorder. Oh, I also "borrowed" a lightbulb from the garage..!

This one is quite different from my usual work, since I didn't use paint. It's real junk glued together, and I hoped I could express myself through the materials themselves, and their true appearance.

I'll post some color pics soon.

The film stock comes from ~volframia20 on dA.
That's all, I guess..
