Robots have long been the fixation of sci-fi writers, movie makers and just about anyone interested in artificial intelligence. The artwork of Greg Brotherton and his Brotron installment feeds into that lust as it brings to live (at least partially) the stuff that dreams are made of, in metal and rivet form.

Each robot is made by hand from steel with hammers, and weighs between 80 and 200 pounds.

Implications - The mass adoption of tech in pop culture has spawned a renewed interest in sculptures inspired by science fiction. Robots are key components of this futuristic vision; their prevalence in recent years proves that these automatons, whether functional or not, have a fervent consumer base.
