What motivates people, who mange to build automatons from cranks, gears, springs and shafts that can move, play music, tell stories and come alive? For whom are these masterpieces at the edge of the technological possibilities made? To answer these questions, the exhibition itself becomes an automaton. The visitor follows the complex structure of the rooms through time and explores, equipped with the “key to life”, digital terminals describing the exhibition pieces and making them come alive through multimedia content.
