The Birthing Engine - Video

  - a contemporary automaton by Dug North

This is a crude video I shot of The Birthing Engine.

As you can see, I had not yet stained the piece. The bell had not been added at this point, nor had the weighted base or engraved title plaque.

That lovely ambient noise is my television.

Given that I shot this with my old Canon Powershot digital camera, it is about as could as could be expected.
