One of the things that makes me feel good about the world around me is gravity. It is a very weak force, and yet every body of matter in space exerts gravitational force on every other body in space. That means you and I. We are pulling, at each other, at the planets, stars, rocks, trees, gaseous clouds. Everything. So I wanted to make something that was, in a vague way, about gravity. Input force is stored in a spring, then transferred to a fly-wheel, then to a gear, then a lever, and finally a mangle-gear driving a rod at an odd angle. On that rod sits a figure, anchored to the machine.
