by Paul Strauss

I’m a sucker for robots – and I love cool lamps. So when I saw these cool robotic sculptures that light up, I just had to write about them.

Handcrafted by Pennsylvania artist Toby Atticus Fraley, these robot sculptures are assembled from vintage found objects (aka “Junque”), and lovingly reconfigured by Fraley to form one-of-a-kind artworks.

Each robot has a unique personality, ranging from rock star, to an amputee robot, to a Slim Pickens as Major T.J. ‘King’ Kong riding a nuke in Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb – ‘bot.

While they’re made up of a variety reclaimed objects, it seems that Toby has an affinity for old picnic coolers and vacuum cleaner parts. And while you can’t get a good sense of size from these images, just know that they’re very substantial, ranging in height from about 28″ tall, all the way up to a near-life-size 58″ tall.

Toby has also recently started to make some most excellent neo-futuristic remote controls for turning his robot lights on and off from across the room.

Fraley’s robots have made their way into the private collections of Grammy Award winning musicians, a Silicon Valley tech company headquarters, and a had a cameo in couple of TV scenes over on HGTV. Now you can own one of these wondrous creations for yourself.
