“Auckland-based artist Martin Horspool loves to trawl through scrap yards and junk shops looking for disused and unwanted household objects. He collects scrap to recycle the components to make retro robots. And this isn’t just a backyard hobby, Martin’s robots are showing in galleries in London, Amsterdam, Berlin and New York. Last year, his Retrobots exhibition was a big hit in Tokyo. Martin says people love looking at old robots because they recall a bygone age while also referencing today’s disposable culture.”
