Artists and designers see things a lot different than a normal being. What might look like waste material to us, an artist can use it as an important component for creating his artwork. We have shown you some fascinating creative work from different artists in the past such as mechanical insects by JM Gershenson-Gates and Cycle Critters artwork by Mike Schram. Today also, we are bringing to you beautiful artistic creations in the form of robotic sculptures that are made out of broken household electrical items. California photographer Larry Wong constructs electronic figures ranging from insects to drones using components from broken VCRs, hard drives, plugs, DVD drives and vacuum tubes.
Named Mechanoids, these miniature droids from Larry Wong are inspired by science fiction films from the 70s and the work of set designer H.R. Giger who was a part of 1979 sci-fi movie Alien award winning special effects team. His sculptures vary between four and six inches in size and a detailed creature can take up to 6 hours to complete. Each Mechanoid is assembled together by using copper, steel and aluminum wires. Giving a perfect shape to a creature is really time-consuming but the fascination of designer towards electronics makes him do it with great focus and energy.
