The Thingy I made for
's RFE Ethereal Exhibition for Steampunk City art show.
It's a hollow book box. The ribbon holds it closed. It started out as a stockboard book but I carved out the pages and covered it with paint and paper and gears and stuff. Originally, I had it set up so the gears would move if you turned them, but it damaged the cover so I wired them all down.
I've never made this sort of thing and I had no idea what anyone else was submitting so *anxiety!* but everybody I showed it to liked it and I got offers for the prototype I made for practice, so I sucked it up and sent in the finished one.
It has something in it.
