Hypnotic Kinetic sculpture

I've seen this guy's stuff before, but he's added flash animation of his sculpture rather than animated .gif's.   It's hypnotic and fucking incredible.  If I had the money, I'd totally line the inside of my hippy tree-sphere with these sculptures.
At his web site, Wood That Works , David C. Roy writes about his wooden sculptures:
• No Batteries, No Electricity
• Spring Driven Mechanism
• Runs 3 to 20 hours per winding
• Limited Editions

Each of my kinetic sculptures is a wooden machine powered by a constant force spring which must be wound. While visually interesting sculptures when still, they become truly fascinating when in motion. After a simple winding they entertain with motion and soft sounds for varying lengths of time.
Courtesey of Make.
