A companion piece to Black Capstan.


Another piece drawn from an old VCR chip board, I always had a great fascination with these as a child. I used to peer through the video slot to see the slightly tilting capstan. It’s the tilt that really interested me (and still does), in this miniature world of mechanical parts something that has been intelligently placed off angle catches your eye.”


This piece highlights my favourite aspect of its counterpart.
