Jeremy Mayer's Recycled Creatures

Jeremy Mayer has created a typewriter freakazoid before and apparently, the recycled-tech-as-art bug has hit him again.

Mayer tears apart the typewriters and then reassembles them into sci-fi inspired models that try to be anatomically correct. He says he is a cross between Da Vinci (who loved drawing mechanical things) and the new sci-fi designers.

I think his work is better described more like Mythbusters meet Orange County Choppers.

Implications - The green revolution has been a powerful cultural force that has ingrained itself in the lives of a large cross-section of society. This group prizes reconceptualizing waste as a product with either artistic merit or functional value. Companies ought to be thinking about how they can turn their waste byproducts into objects with value.
