It’s not that I haven’t seen robotic sculptures before, but I can say with confidence that I’ve never seen any as intricate as Jeremy Mayer’s incredible typewriter robots.
Mayer builds his amazingly detailed sculptural creations entirely from parts found on old typewriters. His human and animal organic forms give new life to the cold metal of these mechanical relics.
The Tahoe City, California artist disassembles old typewriters and then reassembles them without glue, solder or welding.
His organic, metallic sculptures are a reflection of his fascination with how scientific progress continues to lead us towards the emulation of nature in technology.
Be sure to head on over to Jeremy Mayer’s online portfolio to see many more photos of his elaborate sculptures. Mayer is next expected to exhibit his works at La Jolla’s Device Gallery in the Summer of 2009.
