In the middle of nowhere, Robert Coudray's world comes alive, rustles, takes on color, plays with recycled objects and nature. This little man, sensitive to the world around him, has been reinventing it with his creativity for 30 years. Animated sculptures , useless machines, offbeat architectures, gardens , films, games, eco-homes, everything is humor, magic and emotion. From automata to unusual objects, passing by musical fountains or wind totems, Robert is now building a strange cathedral. The magical buildings and gardens of this gears-pulling machine trace an imaginary path of beautiful freedom. Borrow it for a visit.
