Technology Gone Wild

Artist Sean Avery is doing some pretty wild things with used technology components, like the rat seen here. (That's one rodent I wouldn't mind having in my house!)
Avery, who describes his work as "Energetic, playful, and surprising", sculpts his fanciful creatures out of wire mesh armitures, cds, (which he snips into shape with kitchen scissors), hot glue, and used electrical components.

Avery says of his work: : "The nature of my sculpture practice ensures that each piece will be completely
unique. I blend many different man-made materials
together to make them appear strangely organic, with a distinct sense of movement. I only use recycled materials to create my sculptures, which classifies my work as 'sustainable art'"
His methods seem to be working: he is currently unable to do a gallery exhibit of his sculpture, because they sell as fast as he can make them, and large-scale commissions - like a dragon with a six foot wing span for a Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum - are rolling in.

To see more of Avery's work, visit his home page,
or view this slide show on Artinfo.

Oh, and by the way, Sean is multi-talented. He's also just written and illustrated a childrens' book called All Monkeys Love Bananas,
and the illustrations look every bit as colorful and whimsical as his sculpture.
