A look into the future.

I looked at a piece of plastic and saw a face. I saw a robot, an alien, a strange creature from another planet. It had eyes, a mouth, and hands.  
Then I saw a spaceship, and it had windows. It's eyes have bionic vision, being able to see in all directions without moving. The flames glow red at the tips giving it the extra thrust it needs to leave the earths atmosphere and fly a million light years through the universe. 
There was a slash with jagged edges, it had been in a battle and was bleeding.
Looking out of the windows I saw ten little faces, miniature robots, not yet fully formed. They are waiting patiently for the right time to leave the parent robot.



I think it makes a nice centre piece above my fireplace.
And this is how it began, a piece of wrecked car.
What did I use to create this. Coloured vinyl, two flip tops from shampoo bottles, six curly electric cables, six pieces of  wire, hearing aid battery pack, the batteries replaced with beads, a pewter cat earring, a floppy disc, three silver discs from key rings, vinyl silk emulsion paint, and acrylic paint. It cost me virtually nothing.  I think it's turned out quite good, exactly how I imagined it. Toodle pip.

  11. Very creative and well done! When I look at the scrap metal I see a bird. I'm not sure I could bring it to life so nicely like you do. Have a wonderful weekend.

  15. Love it! And where you hung it is great. Yes, like lizp2000 said, I bet the car manufacturer would get a kick out of seeing what you did with that. Very creative and imaginative.

  19. Ditto to everyone else's comments. You have an amazing gift! To be able to see the beauty in the junk and to be able to execute your vision.

    And with sense of humour!

    Love it!

  20. Amazing. How you are able to transform junk into art is really amazing. What a wonderful imagination you have and how lucky you are to be able to translate that to your art.

  21. Ditto Ditto ditto....brilliant, very Salvador Dali esq. I took a book out of the library yesterday by Tammy Kushnir, it's called elemental journal. She makes things out of discarded items. The one I liked most was the minute handmade book, inside a plastic holder from a memory card..they're about 2 cms by 4cms. I was reminded of you while I was reading it

  27. Hi Ilona
    I haven't been online for a few days and have just seen your masterpiece, I LOVE it.
    You really should do more and have an exhibition, I'm sure people would love it too.
    I especially like the little hands, could do with those on a crazy block in the appropriate setting.

  29. This is fantastic. You're so creative it's ridiculous. You should put a little photo of what it used to be like on the mantelpiece so people can see what it was before. They'd never believe you if you told them haha.
