Located in Nanten, France, “La Machine” specializes in building massive machine characters. Directed by Francois Delaroziere, whose background lies in set design and theater, the firm is responsible for a dizzying array of creations and methods of non-verbal communication through machines. Os Gemeos visited “La Machine” (apparently with JR and his wife Prune). Their photos tell a vivid story of the studio that produces these stunning objects.

More photographs from Os Gemeos after the jump.
