Back in 2003, my friend Mike Missiaen was planning to make a movie called War Against Sleep. He asked me to make a prop, and he wanted it to have a certain look — I think he called it “techno-Victorian.” Nowadays, we’d call it “steampunk,” but I hadn’t heard that word yet.
I had a lot of fun making this. It’s not often that a project involves welding, woodworking, electronics, and upholstery at the same time.
So far, this is the only product of Profligate Machine.
