Saturday the 21st and Saturday the 28th were hopping with lots of folks joining in on the taking apart of many many objects. I tried to record as much as possible but it was such a wonderful feast of dismantlement it was tough to keep up! Oh, and there was face painting on the 21st. How could I resist?
Some of the items taken to pieces:
- 12/21 Decade old eMachine, it’s hard drive and CD player (floppy held in reserve to turn into an Arduino based Moppy music player)
- 12/21 Teac iPod doc (makes a good home for the eMachine’s power supply?)
- 12/21 Broken Sony Cybershot (What to do with the lenses?)
- 12/28 Kenwood stereo equipment (We looked inside, but no one could bring themselves to dismantle them. They were too gorgeous. Actual string pulley system to move the radio dial, wonderful. I put the lids back on at the end of the day.)
- 12/28 A Sony 5-CD changer with the most beautiful cam system, a type of Geneva Drive. I tried to make a sculpture out of it, but sadly the platter and the CD slip when they player is turned on its side, causing function errors. Where the control panel lives and what the sculpture will be has to be rethought.
- 12/28 3 different hard drives stripped. to. the. bone.
