Moving sculptures that can also move hearts

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Half machine and half art. That's how Carlos Zapata explains his works.

The Colombian artist makes automata, small sculptures that he animates using techniques that have been around for centuries.

Zapata's works are on display until January 28, 2018 at San Francisco's Exploratorium.
