forevertron world largest scrap metal sculpture Forevertron: Sculpture by Dr. Evermor

Dr. Evermore (Tom Every) was a salvage expert prior to becoming an artist. He created Forevertron from tons of industrial scrap and machines. The website has a lot of great photos including a popcorn stand and a full orchestra of birds that were all created by Dr. Evermore.

All components of Forevertron are salvaged from old bits and pieces of machineries between 50 to 100 years old, and are welded and bolted together for stability. Its components include a pair of bipolar electrical dynamos constructed by Thomas Edison in the late 19th century and a decontamination chamber from the Apollo space mission. The top of the sculpture is a copper-clad glass ball, meant to be Dr. Evermor’s space capsule!
