I recently learned of the the phenomenal world of talented illustrator and sculptor Jeremy Mayer.
His medium: Typewriters.
I find Jeremy's work to be interesting on multiple levels; It is exacting, playful, mechanical and an expression of nature simultaneously. There is such beauty in the expression of his creations. I can feel the depth in the eyes, and the delicacy of the hand. The figure above is titled: Delilah. She is real. Isn't she?
Jeremy describes his work and process: "I disassemble typewriters and then reassemble them into full-scale, anatomically correct human figures. I do not solder, weld, or glue these assemblages together- the process is entirely cold assembly. 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".
