Oil Cans & Art

David Trautrimas

… he created the ideal place for my oil can collection

The New York Times review of “Habitat Machines” by Penelope Green mentioned 2009 about the artist (shortened):

David Trautrimas, a 30-year old Canadian artist, takes apart old kitchen mixers, hole punchers, waffle irons, staplers, vacuum cleaners, coffee machines and other household objects; photographs the pieces; and them “re-assembles” them digitally, into what he calls “Habitat Machines”. With their industrial steampunk aesthetic and looming, animated postures, his machines would fit nicely into the sets of Terry Gilliam's clanking dystopia “Brazil”. Or perhaps post-crash Dubai.The copyright of the picture below is with David Trautrimas!
Mr. Trautrimas became interested in the idea of creating fanciful dwellings unfettered by zoning ordinances or the laws of physics, he said, after noting the blandness of most residential development. “What Frank Gehry and Zaha Hadid are doing on a commercial scale would be so cool if it was happening residentially” he said.
