Robots Reborn. Upcycled Illuminated Art Robot Sculptures by +Brauer
A graphic designer by trade, +Brauer (as he is known) creates works of art for album covers. He also creates his own unique works of art in the form of robot sculptures.
He created his first robot sculpture about 10 years ago. He is constantly on the lookout for unique, beautiful, and interesting bits to incorporate into one of his pieces. Friends often bring him things that have found as well.
No “Danger Will Robinson” from these Unique Art Pieces
Sure robots bespeak technology, but +Brauer goes for more than that. He selects vintage objects that show their age. He likes works with an industrial past, that show the years of use.
After selecting the parts, he alters some of the them, such as cutting in windows to show off the lighting he also adds. Then he assembles the parts into a one of a kind robot sculpture.
The beauty of the materials and the venerable patinas express their beauty in the light of day, while at night, it is the turn of the strange, evocative light fittings to reveal their magic.
Abandoned or forgotten in workshops and garages, the industrial parts are reborn in unique works of art that embrace us with their kind presence, imposing personality, and amazing humanity.
Each piece reminds us that what is old can be made new again. Not to mention that ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure’! Each robot sculpture is 100% unique. They are all given names that reflect their personality.
