Michael Salter, an associate professor of digital arts at the University of Oregon created these robot sculptures out of polystyrene (hence they are called styrobots) and his biggest creation stands at 22 feet tall. The smaller robots near its feet keep people from getting too close to it and accidentally knocking it over.
Salter took all winter to cut the pieces which are then glued together and his works are often destroyed at the end of showing. The styrobots may be short lived but they have gathered the audience attention at the shows.
