Robot - Betty Blue Ribbon
Where others see junk, Lynne Taylor Fahnestalk sees potential as she creates one-of-a-kind robot sculptures from upcycled metal objects. Her Bots have been described as 3-D cartoons and she likes that comparison. Each Bot is securely constructed using drilling and screws and she uses the metal pieces as she finds them: never polishing, painting or shaping. The search for useable objects is a large part of the creative process-garage sales and flea markets are her friends.
The question Lynne is asked most often about her Bots is, "do they move?" And her answer is, "not when I've been looking." Lynne lives in Vancouver, British Columbia with her wonderful husband and a house full of robot parts.
