艺术家Jeremy Mayer从小就着迷于父母的那台Underwood #5 circa 1920打字机,从22岁起开始对老式打字机进行拆解和重组的创作工作。时隔9年,你仍然可以在一堆打字机零件中发现他的身影。他所创造的都是与实物大小相当的机器人、动物、昆虫,所有部件全都来自打字机,没有胶水,无需焊接,不用任何螺丝、铁丝来固定。

With a childhood fascination of old typewriters inspired by his parent’s Underwood #5 circa 1920, artist Jeremy Mayer has become a master typewriter assemblage sculptor. At the age of 22, he was given an Olivette Lettera 32 typewriter to take to the thrift shop, instead it would be the first of the vintage typewriters he would disassemble then reassemble into awe-inspiring works of art including life-size human figures, animals and insects. Nineteen years later he can still be found sitting cross-legged on the floor surrounded by a plethora of typewriter parts and tools. One distinct practice sets him apart from many artists; he cold assembles each and every part of his sculptures. That means no glue, no solder, no welding, no wire and not one part that is foreign to a typewriter. metal-sculpture-jeremy-mayer-4 metal-sculpture-jeremy-mayer-2-600x600 metal-sculpture-jeremy-mayer-3-600x608 metal-sculpture-jeremy-mayer-47 metal-sculpture-jeremy-mayer-43 metal-sculpture-jeremy-mayer-14 metal-sculpture-jeremy-mayer-5 metal-sculpture-jeremy-mayer-44
