Life-sized nude sculpture made from typewriter parts

Typewriter assemblage scluptor Jeremy Mayer writes, "I just finished my latest big sculpture. Titled Nude VI (Theia), it stands over 7 feet, 4 inches (224cm) tall, and will be suspended on thin cables high above the offices of Oculusvr in Los Angeles. She took a little over a year and about 1100 hours of work. Made in Oakland."

I've featured a lot of Jeremy's work in the past and even own one of his pieces (I wish I could afford more!).

From San Diego's Dan Jones (aka Tinkerbots), a rather lovely junkbot called HUDSON, found in the Boing Boing Flickr Pool. He's also the guy who gave us these bots and these stellar rayguns. He's got a shop, but it's presently empty (let's hope it gets some stock for Christmas!).
