Nemo Gould is an artist who has always loved to take things apart, since childhood. This might have inspired him to create stunning robot sculptures, which he constructs out of objects he finds. His robots are simple, sometimes scary and sometimes hilarious. The idea behind his robots is to evoke a child-like wonder from those who look at his work, because he feels that adults often lose the sense of wonder in the ordinary. His robots feature working lights and moving parts, to elevate them into objects which are a gateway to childhood.
