Miniature Figurines Create Animated Scenes On Moving Watch Hands [Video]

Miniature Figurines Create Animated Scenes On Moving Watch Hands [Video]

Artist Dominic Wilcox created tiny scenes from everyday life.

Leah Gonzalez

British artist and designer Dominic Wilcox attached tiny customized figurines to the second and minute hands of vintage mechanical watches to create his series called Watch Sculptures.

Wilcox used basic strapped wrist watches and pocket watches for his sculptures, with the miniature models attached to the hands protected by a transparent half dome.¬†Each timepiece sculpture features a unique scene that becomes ‘animated’ as the hands of the watch move.

In the piece Unrequited Handshake, a figurine of a man with his hand outstretched is on the second hand while a model of a man with his arms crossed is attached on the minute hand. In another piece, ‘Adventures of a Vegetarian,’ a pig tied to a bunch of balloons is on the second hand while a boy staying the axe-wielding hand of a butcher is on the minute hand. The sculpture series features other interesting and poignant scenes and observations from daily life.
