what did we come across: bennett robots
bennett robots are currently being displayed in the window of paul smith on fifth ave and 16th street which is where i came across the wonderfully crafted objects.
they are each unique sculptures made from found objects by gordon bennett. they each take about a month to build, are all on sale and cost some hefty prices. though not real functional robots with any actually working parts i find them incredibly imaginative and fun. pictured here in order are: volt ohmyst, nick and nora, and arvin 2. (and i kind of like arvin 2 the best because the hitchhikers guide robot was named marvin.)
