Abstract

Human heir catalogues the mechanism as living being through character and interaction. The life of basic machines such as hand tools and anvils is characterized by the interaction with other mechanical forms and the collaboration with their creator, the human machine. The concepts of function, personality, relevance, and existence are observed on seemingly lifeless elements, and the simplicity of the human mechanism is explored.
