Artist Makes These Guns From Old Typewriters

Éric Nado is a machine whisperer. A transformer of industrial objects and relics, he takes them apart and reassembles them into new objects bearing a striking symbolic charge.

Using iconic metal objects such as typewriters and sewing machines, Nado materializes concepts such as labor and memory. Filled with nostalgia, the objects transformed into sculptures tell compelling stories.
