Jeremy Mayer is an Oakland, California sculptor who creates full-scale human figures and parts of human anatomy from one very specific material: typewriter parts. He calls the work re-assemblage as he uses no solder, no welding, no glue, and does not use any object or material that does not come from a typewriter. He puts his work together by using the mechanical processes used to hold the typewriter together. The very screws, springs, pins, nuts, and bolts that held the typewriter together become, in his hands, the sinew, bone, and surface anatomy of striking life-size and lifelike human figures and parts of the human anatomy.
