Little Big Man: Robot Inside a Robot

by Paul Strauss

What did the big robot say to the little robot? “Get in me belly!” At least that’s the way this amazing automaton works. The larger-than-life wood and metal robot features a tiny little robot inside its gut, and it looks like he’s the real brains of the operation.

Little Big Man 2008 Robot by Nemo Gould

Little Big Man 2008 is the offspring of mechanical sculptor Nemo Gould, known for his incredible kinetic creations built from post-consumer junk.

The eponymous “Big Man” is an 8-foot tall robot made from found objects including a vintage radio cabinet, street lamp poles, vacuum cleaner parts, industrial food processor, antlers, chair legs, dining room table top, floor polisher, and a variety of scrap metal, motors and other parts.

The “Little Man” lives inside the belly of the beast, working at the controls of his unwitting host. As he pulls his levers, the giant’s mouth opens and closes with an imposing bite. Check out the video clip below to see the robotic sculpture in motion.

Nemo has put together a brief video showing some of the behind-the-scenes action as he builds his amazing mechanical creations.

The automata was built especially for the San Jose Museum of Art’s “Robots: Evolution of a Cultural Icon” show, which runs from now through October 19, 2008. If you happen to be in the Bay Area, be sure to check it out in person.
