Wired has a set of photographs of work by Jeremy Mayer, who collects antique typewriters and then rips them apart to create different works of art, mostly based on science fiction-inspired bugs, animals and human figures. Jenna Wortham writes:

Mayer, who describes his work as a cross between Leonardo da Vinci’s mechanical drawings and the gritty futures imagined by sci-fi maestros William Gibson and Philip K. Dick, assembles his artwork without welding, soldering or gluing.

One of the comments on the photograph pictured here is particularly interesting: “I don’t find your figures to be creepy, rather, unsettling. I like that better. But the same time they are very inviting.”
