Tahoe City-based artist Jeremy Mayer constructs figurative forms-humans, cats, and crickets alike-using defunct typewriter parts. His involved assembly projects are a testament to his steadfast attention to detail; the large sculptures can take up to 1,200 hours to complete. Though Mayer begins his artistic process by taking typewriters apart, his ultimate products are reconstructions that uncannily transform mechanical objects into body parts.
