You have to automate them to fully appreciate them, but for those who can't make it to the Catlins - aka the "hairy right cheek" of Southland - here's a small selection of Blair's weird and wonderful wind-up, water-driven gadgets and gizmos made from found objects — shells, toys, coins, wood, watches, wire and more.
Please note: Blair no longer sells his automata. Each item you see below is a one-off, lovingly preserved for visitors to enjoy.
