Giant Styrofoam Robots on the Attack!

by Paul Strauss

Actually, despite their size, these styrofoam robots look pretty docile. In fact, you could probably take down an attacking Styrobot with a well-placed karate chop or two.

StyroBot by Michael Salter

With the largest of his creations towering overhead at 22-feet tall, Michael Salter’s packing foam robot sculptures are a sight to behold. Surrounded by an army of pint-sized sentry Styrobots, the gargantuan ‘bot is actually made from discarded packing materials, hung on a wooden skeletal system for support.

You can check out the robots shown above at the Robots: Evolution of a Cultural Icon exhibit at the San Jose Museum of Art, which runs through October 19, 2008.

    On the left shoulder of the giant robot is a bowl-shaped piece with a slot cut in it. That’s the packing material from an old Apple iMac G4 (like the 1.25 GHz model). I have one of those in my office. When it is sitting on a desk with the bowl opened upwards, it looks like a toilet. I put a sign next to mine that says “please flush after use” in three languages.
