Mario Calcedo's Columbian junkbots

Mario Caicedo makes some very gnarly jinkbot sculptures in his Bogotán workshop down in Columbia. For some reason, every time I watch Blade Runner, I always think of the vermin of J.F. Sebastian's Los Angelean apartment as being scurrying robotic creatures like this. Mario Caicedo [Flickr via MAKE]

    Ahh, there’s nothing quite like Anonymous accusations of Ameri-centrism aimed at someone living in Germany.

    Oh, and not only living in Germany, but an Irish person living in Germany.

    Please, try to study a little Geography: it’s COLOMBIA, not COLUMBIA.
    We know you americans consider yourselves the center of the world and you have Coulmbia’s district but please…….

    Yup, Colombia, not Columbia. Common mistake, but a big one

    Junkbot, or jinkbot?
    (Not that I’d know the difference either way…)

    @ #4: Considering Columbia is in South Carolina and Colombia is in South America, I’d say it’s a big deal. I know I wouldn’t want directions to one when looking for the other…
