How to build a time machine

To celebrate the launch of The Cosmic Adventures of Alice and Bob, I recently worked with the amazing book club kids at the Amherst Village Library to design and build some incredible time machines.


Of course, constructing time machines is a top secret process, so I’ve only included the ‘before’ shots. And a couple of biographies of the creators (all encrypted, of course). And some blueprints I managed to smuggle out.

We had a load of fun, with huge thanks to Shannon for the incredible musical entertainment!

And a warning: do try this at home! Or at a creative workshop near you… You’re bound to create something amazing.
