For all extents and purposes, typewriters have become obsolete in the 21st century. But a California-based designer, Jeremy Mayer, takes these machines and turns them into full-scale, anatomically correct human figures.
That’s right, Mayer creates sculptures using nothing but recycled typewriter parts. These creations may be scary-looking at times but they’re definitely inventive.
Mayer does not solder, weld or glue the different parts together. The entire process is cold assembled, thus he does not use anything for these sculptures that was not once part of a typewriter.
In the short video below Mayer talks briefly about his creative process and the abundance of typewriters that can still be found.
