藝術家Jeremy Mayer從小就著迷於父母的那台Underwood #5 circa 1920打字機，從22歲起開始對老式打字機進行拆解和重組的創作工作。時隔9年，你仍然可以在一堆打字機零件中發現他的身影。他所創造的都是與實物大小相當的機器人、動物、昆蟲，所有部件全都來自打字機，沒有膠水，無需焊接，不用任何螺絲、鐵絲來固定。
With a childhood fascination of old typewriters inspired by his parent’s Underwood #5 circa 1920, artist Jeremy Mayer has become a master typewriter assemblage sculptor. At the age of 22, he was given an Olivette Lettera 32 typewriter to take to the thrift shop, instead it would be the first of the vintage typewriters he would disassemble then reassemble into awe-inspiring works of art including life-size human figures, animals and insects. Nineteen years later he can still be found sitting cross-legged on the floor surrounded by a plethora of typewriter parts and tools. One distinct practice sets him apart from many artists; he cold assembles each and every part of his sculptures. That means no glue, no solder, no welding, no wire and not one part that is foreign to a typewriter.
