Peter Kokis makes robots. Or extra appropriately, he turns into robots. This Brooklyn artists takes elements from various things — slicers, juicers and the like — and sticks them collectively to make some wonderful costumes. He then wanders the streets of Brooklyn wanting 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 have a look at the form of objects and see their potential to painting one thing,” he wrote. “Just about all the pieces may be modified to go well with my wants: re-shaped, cut-down, painted…altered in my ‘foundry’, to be seen as one thing else.”
This cute video reveals Kokis’ foundry — truly his kitchen desk — up shut and explores the dedication of an artist who likes to make cool stuff to make individuals blissful — a mission that applies to us all.
