Artist Jeremy Mayer creates unbelievable sculptures using only parts from old typewriters.

Using these, he creates fantastic models of people, birds, insects and other animals.

In the video above, he describes his creative process, which is heavily based on constraints.

I have written previously about the creative power of constraints. It is due to the fact that our brains are actually not very effective at thinking of new ideas without any seed to build from. I call it the tyranny of the blank page.
