Robot Sculptures

Gordon Bennett makes robot sculptures out of old and new found objects.  “The parts are found in various places including garbage dumps, basements, construction sites, and garage sales. They are inspired by Norman Bel Gedes and Raymond Loewy whose visions of the “Modern Age” helped shape industrial design of the 40’s and 50’s.”

I love that each robot is unique and comes with its own numbered metal tag.  As a former metal sculptor and current robot-head, I’m also drawn to his mix of old and new design. The retro becomes modern and vice versa. Each robot has such personality.
