stuff made from stuff is all about reusing other peoples discarded items. To create something that otherwise would end up at the dump. Ever since I can remember, I have loved taking things apart to discover how they worked. To marvel at the engineering it took to create the many different things in our modern world that are just so cool to look at. I have always been tinkering and inventing new things from old stuff. One day the hard drive on my computer crashed and of course, I just had to take it apart. Well 3 or 4 hard drives later, I came up with my first hard drive clock. After a few friends saw the clock and asked if they could have one, 1 led to 3 and that led to a lot more.

It was November of 2006 and the holidays were coming. I couldn’t believe how well my clocks took off. Everything I was using to build the clocks were either donations, dumpster dives or just plain luck. Well business was getting better and yet I had no computer junk to work with. Well, as Im sure many of you are aware, there is no lack of old computer hardware to be found. The one thing that this adventure has taught me is that there is a huge problem with all the ewaste that we are creating. There is a great website, www.thestoryofstuff.com that really doe’s a great job of explaining consumerism and how it is destroying our planet. So my job now is to try and create as many different, cool gadgets from recycled stuff that I possibly can so that I can sustain myself and my need to create while helping postpone the final resting place of many of our retired modern gadgets
