Ask any engineer how he discovered his passion and about 99% of the answers will have something to do with taking things apart to see how they worked. In order to learn how to make things work, we disassemble things — the vacuum cleaner, a radio, or dad’s lawnmower engine. It’s reverse engineering, but it’s crucial to both building the engineering passion and to understand what’s been done before.
Ask Canadian photographer Todd McLellan where he discovered his passion for his latest work and you’ll get the same answer. Now, he had a somewhat more artistic end in mind. One that involved showing all the bits and pieces in artistic manners. Something engineers probably never thought of doing. But it’s interesting to see that the desire to take things apart can cross brain hemispheres.
