Henning Lederer's Machinatorium features art and animation of pictograms and other abstractions of the human form. Lederer is also known for animating Fritz Kahn's classic poster Der Mensch als Industriepalast.

What is it that's so enchanting about art with unambiguous, mechanical detail? Art is usually perfectly poised to capture a singular, subjective moment. This does the opposite. It captures a slickly operating routine. Homunculi are cute, too, I suppose.

Der Mensch als Industriepalast seems to be on show in an interesting-sounding exhibition of posters advertising health at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
