Recycling  always recycling all I can.

This Lamp is made of Cassette tapes, and I adapted an old Joystick  as a switch.

A tribute for old tapes.

Soon are coming more things I am thinking to make with Tapes.

Tribute to cassette tape, which kept us 
company all trough the 80ies and became a 
symbol of a generation.

Homenaje a las cintas que nos han acompañado
en los 80s y constituyen el
símbolo de una generación.
