Wilmington, Delaware-based artist Brian Marshall creates awesome robot sculptures by reusing just about any metal object he can get his hands on. Forgotten boxes in the backs of attics and garages are his treasure chests. For Marshall, building lively little robots out of old cutlery, spice tins and car parts isn’t simply a hobby, it’s an obsession. That’s why he created Adopt-a-bot: the Found Object Art Robot Assemblage Orphanage.
"Each robot is constructed almost entirely from reused materials. These materials are cleaned and polished to varying degrees depending on the persona I am attempting to achieve. Even the nuts and bolts that are used to hold together each creation are from a recycler. With simple, fun designs that contain easily recognizable pieces, it is my hope that viewers will not only find a personality to connect with, but that they will also see the value of and possibilities for reducing, reusing and recycling in our world today."
