A mechanical representation of Eris, the Greek goddess of strife and discord. Constructed from a framework of steel rods around a functioning mechanical skeleton. Skinned with hammer formed steel panels that are welded for a riveted look and coated with an exterior marine varnish.

Seated 4 feet high the figure would stand about 7 feet tall and weighs around 80 pounds. Built in sections that bolt internally so it can be disassembled for shipping.





This robotic version of the Roman god Mercury stands 9 feet tall and weighs around 300 pounds. The hand polished and intricately welded steel skin is coated with an exterior marine varnish. The base is a torch cut steel plate bolted to inch thick plywood with casters.


An insect like, robotic version of the Greek Minotaur built around a vintage Kirby vacuum. Minitron stands 7 feet tall and weighs around 100 pounds. Much of the original machine and its functionality are integrated into the new form. The head/motor forces air through the body to fill the original cloth bag mounted on the back. The spear is made from the upright vacuum handle and the head lights up between the horns to show off the Kirby logo plate. The body is all steel coated with an exterior marine varnish. An oxidizing patina was used on the raw steel to blacken and age the metal then brush polished in the high spots to give depth and a look of use. Minitron is built in sections that bolt internally so it can be disassembled for shipping.

A modified Electrolux canister vacuum atop a Steelcase chair base. Made of steel, machined aluminum and acrylic, it stands 20 inches tall with a length of 54 inches. When fired from a trigger at the back of the gun, clear acrylic rods glow a bright ruby red, and a jet like sound comes from 6 German siren whistles powered by vacuum pressure. The sound can be adjusted with the variable pitch dial on the side. Watch the infamous DeathRay commercial here.
