About this Product

The Birdman is a digitally created and manufactured moveable sculpture. The design was inspired by automata and mechanical toys. I wanted to make an interactive sculpture using modern manufacturing methods. The birdman was designed using CAD with all his moveable components placed in one file. He is manufactured in one piece with no assembly required.
When the rod is pulled upwards the beak closes and his arms drop to the sides. When the rod is pushed his beak opens and the arms move outward.
The link below shows the Birdman in action.
