Steven Torres thinks of his sculptures as relics from an alternate timeline. They are inspired by organic forms and mechanical devices merged into unique arrangements. While he uses a variety of new and scavenged elements integrated into the artwork, the repurposed items give the sculpture a hint of age. He searches for objects with a natural patina to enhance the character of the piece. It is his intention to make the work appear as if it could really function as a mechanical creature, rather than just be a static object. He starts with a general idea of what the sculpture should be, but the final design is dictated by the objects available as his palette.
