Creative Tinkerer Takes Apart Reclaimed Items to See What She Can Make From the Internal Parts

Via Laughing Squid

Dina Amin, an Egyptian product designer turned tinkerer, has created a wonderful video series entitled “What’s Inside My Stuff”. Within each video Amin shows how she takes apart a specific reclaimed item at a time to see what can be made from the internal parts. Such items include a hair dryer or a flashlight, which she rebuilds into an amusing toy or sculpture. Amin’s ideas come from her concern about how many things are thrown away.

I am astonished by the amount of things we throw away especially when I go to scrap markets here in Egypt, and when I started posting photos of the products I take apart to learn why they break and are thrown away, people often commented saying that they never got to see whats inside the things they use daily, so I showed them, in an unusual way. And I thought I might have discovered the cutest/weirdest way to talk about consumerism.

  1. Very, very nice. Have recently been doing the same to old (NTSC) TV sets and other electronics, salvaging the parts out of them for re-purposing into aether surfing gear.
