THE ART OF THE GADGET
It is in the very nature of Man to question. Here we proudly present an ever changing selection of such questionings. Often in the mind of the beholder of such phenomena, the question forms.....Why?? The answer is often simply "Because they could!!" Join us please, if you will, in a journey through Idiosyncrasy and Incongruity. We may set sail and slip close to the shores of Eccentricity, but rest assured, the journey will not be without amusement .........
The art of the gadget is sublime, such sublimity often is born of mediocrity. As if the very task deserves a solution which transcends the original purpose, elevating the item to an Art object.
Victorian sensibility, it must be said, would not generally allow an element of simplicity to exist where an object of arcane wonder could be constructed to render a simple task unneccessarily complex.
Generally speaking, if a state of simplicity exists, some bright spark will do his or her best to render that state unnecessarily abstruse.
