The Antikythera mechanism
A well kept secret, in underwater silence. Hiding for 2000 years in the greek archipelago, rusting away. Discovered with the birth of the x-rays. Waiting for 100 more years to be decoded by 3D tomography. Today, we can just about recreate it. And whilst reconstructing it we wonder: Would it be possible for what was conceived and created 2100 years ago, to be manufactured just a couple of centuries back?
Here are some pictures of my gold-plated Antikythera Mechanism replica, together with a video, as well as a little bit of history behind my reconstruction.
