A serie of rough scrap metal art. The materials used had no more meaning for their previous owners but now with their new function they are wanted once again, ironic art if you will.
The most fascinating element of this serie is that humans have the unique ability to feel empathy and compassion to forms and shapes that we recognize as cute, fun, evil etc. Therefore each Toy-Bot has been given his or her own little character which only us humans can feel.
More work of Ronald Duikersloot is to be found at several gallery’s in Amsterdam, New York and the biënnale in Venice, Italy. Click here for a short exhibit overview.
