In a process he calls “reassemblage,” Jeremy Mayer creates sculptural pieces made entirely of typewriters. Without any welds, glue, solder or external parts, Mayer fits the pieces together into likenesses of living creatures using only the machine’s native parts.
At 10 years old, he learned to type on a typewriter at the age of 10, and was mesmerized by the mechanics and beauty of the word processing machine. He began collecting them, taking them apart and creating his own creatures. Now, 20 years later, Mayer has created everything from cats, sparrows and rams, to full life anatomical humanoids.
