The typewriter is often romanticized by writers and design aficionados as being some of the most beautiful, artistic ways to write a letter or a novel, so artist Jeremy Mayer has taken old typewriters and transformed them into beautiful robotic sculptures. After stripping the old typewriters for all their parts, Mayer took the components and ornately arranged them into artworks that look like robotic beings, insects and even animals.

Requiring an intense attention to detail and insurmountable patience, the old typwriter creations by Mayer pay homage to an era long gone by transforming the technology of the past into artwork of the future. It takes what was old and makes it new, allowing the next generation to appreciate the work of those before them.
