Passion and motivation for your creativity is must to accomplish your art – even though you don’t have any training or experience over art or any source. This is what made Jeremy Mayer to become one of the well-know “assemblage Sculptor” like steampunk twitter bird we released earlier in our blog.
The favorite sculptures we admired was birds, spiders and human life size one. The artist is from Northern Minnesota in the US of A in the 1970’s. I moved to Northern California in 1990. I have no formal art training.
I disassemble typewriters and then reassemble them into full-scale, anatomically correct human figures. I do not solder, weld, or glue these assemblages together- the process is entirely cold assembly. I do not introduce any part to the assemblage that did not come from a typewriter.

How he created this art:
I collect typewriters (all vintages) that are in very rough shape, more-often-than-not completely unusable or beyond reasonable repair. I get them from yard sales, flea markets, thrift stores, and from my friends who happen upon them and think of me. Even with all of the key cutters and craters out there taking apart typewriters, there are many more out there in the world than you may think. For now, anyway.
I then disassemble the typewriters, very carefully backing out screws, pulling pins, and unfastening springs. I don’t use power tools to do this, because I don’t want to damage the parts or their finish.
