Sculpture made from typewriter parts by Jeremy Mayer

jeremy-mayer

Jeremy Mayer is a California based artist with no formal art training. Mayer disassembles typewriters and puts them back together to create anatomically correct human figures and animals without any glueing or welding. After disassembly he puts all the parts in to categories and creates the sculptures by putting them back together using the original nuts, bolts and screws from the typewriters. This painstaking process can take at least 1000 hours to make a full scale human figure. He has created 5 since starting in 1994.
