Those are not the eyes of the future, nor is that the face of android seeking to embody and relay human emotion. Undoubtedly compelling, this piece has been constructed with the same precision as any modern gadget, but without all of the flash- what you see above is fact a sculpture made from a relic of our technological past: the typewriter. Jeremy Mayer has made an art of disassembling all kinds of typewriters and reassembling them into the organic forms, resembling humans and animals. Read ahead about how this artist is turning outdated items into something artful and outstanding.
Surprisingly, Mayer does not solder, glue, weld, or use other chemical bonds to create these metal sculptures – all of the joinery is done through “cold assembly.” Certainly imaginative, his works have grown out of his childhood fascination with typewriters, where he found himself breaking apart the machines for more than ten years. A beautiful, curious and certainly a fascinating use of materials , his sculptures also represent a fun way to revive old technology.
