Oakland-based sculptor and illustrator, Jeremy Mayer, collects old typewriters, disassembles them, just to reassemble them in the shapes of birds, animals, humanoids.
"The first few pieces I created were very crude, but I loved the idea of making something from an archaic relic and from only one other object. Reactions to my work are mostly positive. A few typewriter collectors bemoan the destruction of the machines. The ones I use are in pretty rough shape, so I feel no guilt about taking them apart.”
