Nik makes sculptural machines that have drifted away from utility and objects that have forgotten their purpose. Some move and others teeter on the edge of movement. They are assembled from found objects, scrap and steel. Each work might embrace paradox or absurdity but is comfortable with its own quirks and runs to its own logic.
“Fingers" by Nik Ramage is an eternally tapping mechanical copy of the artist’s own hand. At the flick of a switch, the resin cast fingers drum rhythmically, until switched off. Ramage describes himself as a mechanical sculptor who makes useless machines and invents contraptions that the world didn't know it needed. This viral sensation has been re-issued in an extremely limited edition by Laikingland in the UK. The dimensions are that of a human hand.
Made from cast Iron resin, steel, and motor (9 Volt battery not included).
