The Big Idea:
Man with Big Idea, 2004 Jason W. Moulder.
Three Alarm Clocks, 2004 Jason W. Moulder.When absurdity is the mother of invention


When I was a kid, I used to like to take stuff apart. However, unlike clever lads Henry Ford and Thomas Edison, I was never able to put anything back together again. Goodbye, grandmother's alarm clock, dad's lawnmower, and baby's rattle.

Looking back, I realize I had very little interest in the practical aspect of how machines worked. I just wanted to see the beauty of the moving parts. Thank God my curiosity did not extend to living things.

After I had run out of things to destroy, I began creating my own strange inventions on paper. Presented here for your amusement, are some of my impractical childhood conceptions.
