Winch drive Weevil

This weevil automaton was designed and constructed for the 2010 production of The Difficulty of Crossing a Field produced by The University of Texas at Austin Department of Theatre and Dance and Texas Performing Arts.

Sonja Rainey designed the concept and I did the mechanical design and fabrication. Additional sculpting was done by Paul Alix, Karen Maness and David Tolin.

I really felt that I had arrived when Dug North featured it on his The Automata / Automaton Blog
