Lately you have been eyeing that empty space on the bookshelf or that lonely corner of you desk that would be perfect for a really cool and fun piece of sustainable art .
Gordon Bennett of Bennet Robot Works creates robot sculptures made from a mixture of found objects which are old and new. The parts are found in various places including garbage dumps, basements, construction sites and garage sales. The materials are metal, wood, bakelite, glass, rubber, plastic and paint. Each robot takes about a month to build. They range in height from 13" to 37". Each robot is unique and receives it's own numbered metal tag as proof it's an authentic Bennett Robot Works robot.
Gordon's robots are inspired by Norman Bel Geddes and Raymond Loewy whose visions of the "Modern Age" helped shape industrial design of the 1940's and 50's.
Bennett has been creating robot sculptures for about 8 years and his pieces are in private collections throughout the world; United States, Germany, Japan and Great Britain.
