Tim Hunkin is an innovative English engineer, cartoonist, writer, and artist best known for creating the Channel Four television series The Secret Life of Machines in which he explains the workings and history of various household devices. He has also created museum exhibits for institutions across the UK, and designed numerous public engineering works, chiefly for entertainment. Hunkin’s works are distinctive, often recognizable by his unique style of paper-mâché sculpture (made from unpainted newsprint), his pen and ink cartoons, and his offbeat sense of humor.
His “Under the Pier Show” is on Southward Pier in Suffolk, England is a true delight. I love it!
There’s a place in the US with similar cool machines at Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum in Michigan.
