Swiss Artist Creates Amazing Automatons That Come Alive With Ingenious Traditional Engineering

Swiss artist François Junod sat down with Great Big Story in his Sainte-Croix atelier to talk about the amazing and beautiful automatons he creates using traditional techniques that go all the way back to ancient Egypt.

Junod explained that the art of automata marries his creative and engineering interests together and that the real difference between an automaton and a robot is the aesthetic involved.

The process does take a bit time, but these resulting beauty of Junod’s creations are worth it in the end.
