Junkbots:


For our latest art project we explored the art form known as Found Object Sculpture. Simply put, this involves taking any objects that you can find and assembling them into a three-dimensional sculpture. We were able to find (through the kind donations from our staff) several old, broken computers, radios, printers, toys, etc. and then took them apart until they were unrecognizable pieces of plastic and metal. Their assignment was to take these pieces of "junk" and build sculptures resembling robots that were interesting from all angles, had moving parts, and plenty of personality. Here are the first Junkbots off the assembly line...
