We’ve previously given you glimpse into the world of yesteryear technology ripped and stripped down to its bare skeleton, but rather than breaking down products & devices to their most basic parts, how about reconfiguring & resembling them into something utterly different? One man’s trash, is another man’s treasure as they say. It’s an area where visionary sculpture Jeremy Mayer excels. He carefully pulls apart disused typewriters, transforming them into cyborgs, animals and human figures. You can hardly believe that those large, cumbersome and clunky machines, could be morphed into something so complex and delicate. Below is a TED talk where he talks extensively about his passion and its origins.
