“My aim is to show the beauty of the mechanical world, a place generally hidden from the public behind metal and glass. My pieces display the more delicate and ephemeral side of gears, rather than the cold, hard factory feel they normally portray.”

Online Justin is better known as A Mechanical Mind with dedicated followings on deviantART and Facebook. All of his work is also made available for purchase through his Etsy store.
