If only it were so easy as unzipping the case off of a camera to see its amazing insides. It’s not, but Chinese art student Hu Shaoming reworked a bunch of old gadgets with zippers so you can peer at their innards.
The antique devices are currently on display at Guangzhou Art Academy. It features four devices across four decades — a phone from the 1910s, a clock from the 1920s, camera from the 1930s, and a film camera from the 1940s.
Over four months he took each old gadget apart and carefully added a zipper to show off the intricate gears and workings on the inside. Boy are they beautiful.
