72 year old artist Bob Potts uses hand-crafted gears, cranks and chains at his workshop – a 19th century barn in upstate New York – to create wonderful kinetic sculptures mimicking the flight of birds and insects and the swimming motions of fish.

The finished pieces are assembled in collaboration with his friend, painter and sculptor George Rhoads.
