Surreal typewriter assemblage by Jeremy Mayer

Bust V by Jeremy Mayer

Oakland, California based artist Jeremy Mayer makes striking sculptures using only typewriter parts. In a process he calls “reassemblage,” Mayer disassembles typewriters and then reassembles them into full-scale, anatomically correct creatures. Amazingly, he does not solder, weld, or glue; the process is entirely cold assembly. Mayer also does not include any part that did not come from a typewriter.

Mayer’s latest surreal biomechanical artwork is a 13″ tall sculpture of a penguin (see image below).

Watch the video (also below) to hear Mayer explain his process in an interview at Maker Faire Bay Area 2011.
