Well after a long hiatus I’m returning to working on art, jewelry and sculpture. Last year I spent 6 months cleaning up my Uncle’s house and what a treasure trove of scrap material it proved to be. One of the nicest finds was a few dusty, filthy boxes of vacuum tubes. They were / are so old many of the cardboard boxes were deteriorating and crumbling to dust.
So what to do? I’ve had some problems with my vision so I needed to look at a few options – and one day I thought: these vacuum tubes look like little robots. I was on chat with a friend and suddenly said, “ROBOTS”. It was literally one of those inspired moments.
On the weekend I had an inspiration on how to photograph them on various backgrounds. It took ages to figure out the lighting and backdrops, but I am quite pleased.
