Kevin Kelly and Son Create Styrobot
Kevin Kelly was so inspired by Michael Salter, an artist who created 2 Styrofoam robots, that he decided to make one himself. You are looking at the 20 lb. result that took him and his son over 5 years to construct. Built in 5 parts for easy disassembly (a torso and 4 limbs,) they used a foam cutter and about 4 tubes of Lexel silicon to glue the pieces together. We think everybody should build her/his own as a kind of protest of the material, since it is on our top ten list of things that don't recycle.
