Art student Hu Shaoming‘s ‘Reconnecting Time' exhibition, which is on display at the Guangzhou Art Academy where he studies, features antique devices that he has meticulously taken apart and put back together.

While doing so, he also added a zipper to subtley reveal the insides of the objects, exposing the normally hidden gears and internal workings. Cool Hunting reports that Hu collected four different devices, each from a different country, and each created in a different decade.
