Eli Dicken with his Randolph the Robot Reindeer
Eli created a reindeer out of 800+ components including surplus industrial finds, up-cycled parts, and many bolts, nuts, and washers of all kinds. Randolph weighs about 3 1/2 lbs, about 10 inches tall, and about 16 or so inches long.
All of Randolph’s joints are pose-able and tension is adjustable to achieve desired results. The sculpture has 29 different points of articulation, 8 of which are custom made ball joints. All construction is mechanical – no glues, welds, solders, or the like were used. All pieces are screwed, tapped, pressed, pinned, etc.
