Created by Russian artist Eduard Bersudsky and director Tatyana Jakovskaya, the Sharmanka Kinetic Theater is likely one of the most ominous and haunting places in Scotland. Part tinker-toy, part horror, and full of artistically sculpted kinetic machines (most constructed by Bersudsky himself), the theater is rich in world history and Russian lore. A perfect description exists as the header of the theater’s website, describing the museum’s contents as “Hundreds of carved figures and pieces of old scrap perform(ing) an incredible choreography to haunting music and synchronised light, telling the funny and tragic stories of the human spirit as it struggles against the relentless circles of life and death.”

Under the careful hands of Maynard, ordinary feathers are sliced and trimmed until they create miniature scenes dotted with birds in flight and on perches. In fact, each feather shadowbox is its own masterpiece, giving viewers a glimpse at the actual bird from which the feather originated.
