Giant Styrofoam Robots on the Attack!
July 4th, 2008
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.
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.
Additional images of Salter’s wondrous robot creations can be found on the artist’s website.
