About the HeART

Lincoln hosts one of the world’s largest Steampunk festivals, with over 100,000 people flocking into the city every year during the August Bank holiday.

This entire heart is made from laser-cut, folded, and welded gears and cogs. Being totally three-dimensional, as the viewer moves across the piece there will be an interplay between the front and back surfaces – rather like layers of lace.

Kevin is a Royal College of Art trained artist based in Lincolnshire. He specialises in making large scale steel sculptures of animals under the name of Welderbeasts.

The creatures are first modelled in 3D on a computer, cut from sheet steel and welded together to reconstruct the original computer model in the physical world.
