Robbo sez, "Like Giger - but without the creep factor- Pierre Matter's sculptures invoke a bio-mechanical beauty that is both physically sensual and intellectually fascinating."
Pierre Matter was born in 1964.

I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother).
