Golemecha is the reinvention / combination of a mythological being through the lens of technology. In judaic folklore a golem is a protector made from mud and sticks. In Japanese culture a Mech is a warrior made from advanced robotics. By combining them we create a new entity, constructed from both nature and technology. Golemecha was installed in NYC's Flatiron Building, Prow Art space in 2017 with 9 glowing globes to represent 9 celestial bodies. It is under-lit with purple LED’s.

Can be commissioned for construction/installation.
