Peter Kokis makes robots or, extra appropriately, he turns into robots. This Brooklyn artists takes components from various things – slicers, juicers, and the like – and sticks them collectively to make some superb costumes. He then wanders the streets of Brooklyn trying like an escaped Transformer.
His studio website, Brooklyn Robotworks, options lots of his creations together with an alien-looking robotic and an exosuit that appears like one thing out of Gears of Struggle.
“I take a look at the form of objects and see their potential to painting one thing,” he wrote. “Just about the whole lot might be modified to swimsuit my wants: re-shaped, cut-down, painted…altered in my ‘foundry’, to be seen as one thing else.”
This cute video exhibits Kokis’ foundry – truly his kitchen desk – up shut and explores the dedication of an artist who likes to make cool stuff to make folks comfortable – a mission that applies to us all.
