Jeremy Mayer: Typewriter Sculpture

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".
