SUPPORT ROBOT RESCUE!
Did you know that, each year, 17 million robots go without
arms and legs and that some never get a chance to see through transplanted
eyes? In fact, every day, 4 out of 5
robot parts are cast into landfills to simply rust away.
However, there is hope.
Together, we can break the never-ending cycle of waste and
At Robot Rescue International, our mission is to rescue,
reassemble, and release robots into the world again. We believe that, while all robots are not created
equal, they ARE endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that
among these are Life, Personality, and the Pursuit of Appendages.
Please join us in this crusade to end robot cruelty. Save a life.
Buy a robot.
ABOUT THE ROBOT RESCUE COALITION
From recycled and found objects, those things you may
remember from kitchens and garages of years past, comes the artwork of Rebecca
Jackson. Her delight lies within taking
things apart and reassembling the pieces in unexpected ways. From this aesthetic process emerges quirky
robots and steampunk art.
When she goes on rescue missions, she doesn’t see flashlights,
canisters, or teapots. She sees bodies,
heads, and missing legs. Her workshop
surfaces are littered with these body parts, and after trial-and-error limb and
head transfusions, a robot takes shape.
As she drills and bolts them together, their personalities develop, and
the components tell a story that gives each one its own sense of individuality
Each finished piece of art reminds her that being a little
different is not necessarily a bad thing (and that her obsession with metal
objects is, at least, partially justified).
