device extraordinaire


'Growing relentlessly in the mind of Eric Freitas lies a realm of dark mechanical curiosities and horological contradictions. In this world gears are harvested and mechanisms are alive with the organic repetitions of nature's machine. Balancing carefully between creative conception and logical execution, this world would slowly be brought to life. In 2004 Eric began to study the dying craft of clockmaking so that his ideas could be executed, and it would become apparent that even an instrument as logical and precise as a clock could be compromised by ungoverned subconscious thought.' artist's website

I really love this beautiful designs...and the contrast between time and art that defies time, logical mechanisms and
whimsical obsessions. Eric Freitas' strange, abstract expressionist drawings are also very popular as tattoos. And if anyone interested in grabbing some free wallpapers with clockwork details you can find some here.
