Robert Gober is an American sculptor who has an uncanny ability to place random everyday appliances into works of art. Examples such as plumbing fixtures, urinal, sinks and doors all incorporated into a somewhat theatrical scene. Personally, what caught my eye, was the half man torso sculptures and foot sculptures because they represented such realism that it was sort of eerie.
