Skin Ripper 2.0 , 2012
Metal, Robotic Electronics, Mixed media
Skin Ripper 2.0 is the predecessor of the original Skin Ripper both built for the annual fighting robotic table art show Table Fights at the Megan Metz Gallery in New York City. Skin Ripper 2.0 was funded by Kickstarter backers going beyond its pledged goal of $350. Skin Ripper 2.0 was awarded 3rd place after multiple rounds of intense table fighting carnage and a real crowd pleaser. Wired Magazine covered the event and their review and more pictures can be found http://www.wired.com/playbook/2012/05/table-fighting/.
