“art car & DIY work shop”
Obtainium Works is the home base of the Hibernian Academy of UnNatural Sciences, based in Vallejo, California. Recently relocated from The Shipyard in Berkeley, it is an on-going Do It Yourself (DIY) group of tinkerers, gearheads, and steam bohemians who fabricate steam-powered art out of repurposed industrial detritus. We are loosely based on the works of Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, and other Victorian-era writers who created an imaginary world where steam technology was considered cutting edge and brave explorers could be propelled by gun powder to the moon! A once peaceful and dignified warehouse through no fault of its own, it has become OBTAINIUM WORKS. So named because of the recycled nature of its products and occupants. It is the base of operations for projects such as the Giant Sculpture Gardens (elsewhere in Vallejo) and the new Kinetic Sculpture Races from Vallejo to Mare Island on land, water and rail. Obtainium Works will be the birthplace of many new vehicles for the Mad Hatter Parade, robots for robot wars, sculptures and art for patrons. Classes are hoped to be offered for young and old on such things as welding, and how to add motors and embed A.I. in everyday items and how to defend yourself when they try to take over. The opportunities are endless.
