Yes, these are melted or stuck together. I intended to write a review but somehow just didn't thought I'd post the phots as is...

They aren't the best photos, I turned off the flas to avoid reflection, but the gallery was very dark, so lost some of the bright shiny detail.

My impressions were of an alien coming to earth and "fixing our broken toys" for their kids to play with. These are very much like "sampled" or hip hop toys...all collaged together often using a dozen or more toys to make one robot. Yes, they have music and buttons and play songs, and they dance.

what fun art - although in its colorful childishness, to me I see something sinister - like a twist of childhood innocence turning, turning, turning - - - into what?

Yes, diana, these are sinister in some ways, I saw the same energy...
