Jeremy Mayer

Jeremy Mayer disassembles typewriters of all vintages then reassembles the components into mostly life-scale human and animal forms.

“I try to work with real anatomy as closely as you can with typewriter components.”

No wiring, soldering, gluing, or welding is done to put these assemblages together; all construction of his work is painstakingly done only with parts that come from typewriters.

Jeremy lives and works in Oakland, CA.
