In order to create one-of-a-kind sculptures of intriguing and adorable robots, Parisian designer and artist Bruno Lefèvre-Brauer, a.k.a., +Brauer repurposes old mechanical parts. He’s merged his deep love of science fiction with outsider art, and, partly inspired by his collection of Japanese robots, has created a series of 14 handmade industrial golems that appear in Viva la Robolución!—an exhibition at M.A.D.Gallery in Geneva, Switzerland. With names such as Stanislas, Ernest, Cosmos 2001, Hector, and Romeo, each automaton has its own distinct and unusual personality, and like any good artist, +Brauer leaves it up to the viewer to decide which sets of characteristics go with each creation.
