+ Brauer – Viva La Roboluciòn!

Recycle, recycle, recycle! seems to be the motto of the decade. Paris based graphic designer Brauer is yet another great artist who gives us a taste of his creative abilities with his collection cleverly entitled “Viva la roboluciòn!”

Every robot in his collection has its own past, a history that is revealed through its very own components. “+Brauer carefully chooses vintage objects that have an industrial past, that are marked by time and whose patina has been molded by years of manual use. He admires the beauty, sometimes hidden, of these discarded industrial parts, alters their appearance, sculpts them, and incorporates light sources into their structure before assembling the parts together to create a unique and poetic piece.”

“The beauty of the materials and the venerable patinas express their beauty in the light of day, while at night, it is the turn of the strange, evocative light fittings to reveal their magic. Right from conception, the element of light is an integral part of the artwork: each robot is designed to interact with it’s environment in a different way whether it is turned on or off.”

“Abandoned or forgotten in workshops and garages, the industrial parts are reborn in unique works of art that embrace us with their kind presence, imposing personality, and amazing humanity. 
Each piece is a statement of poetic resistance to mass-consumption.
