Jeremy Mayer Builds Robots From Recycled Typewriters

American artist Jeremy Mayer was fascinated with typewriters ever since he was a child. His childhood interest has now become an art form creating sculptures entirely out of old typewriter parts. Mayer disassembles the typewriters and then reassembles them into full-scale, anatomically correct human figures. He also creates sculptures of animals and insects. Interestingly, Mayer doesn't solder, weld, or glue these sculpture together - the process is entirely cold assembly.

Mayer believes the typewriter is a product of nature - it was designed by minds immersed in nature around them, and mimics the curves, geometry, and physical processes abounding in nature. Though it is cold metal created by human hands, Mayor believes the typewriter is just as much a natural material as stone or wood.
