Typewriter Sculptures

Using parts taken entirely from old typewriters, artist Jeremy Mayer makes some of the most intricate robotic sculptures you'll ever see. His work is currently on display at the Device Gallery in San Diego.

As Mayer says of his work:

I'm very interested in assembly, particularly in nature. I pay very close attention to the strong current in science and technology flowing inexorably toward an emulation of natural systems. Over the years I've been watching the advances in molecular engineering and biotechnology with giddy anticipation and also with a faint ping of trepidation. I love the sciences and science fiction, and both disciplines often stress the importance of considering the ramifications of implementing new technologies. These interests figure greatly into my sculpture and drawings.
