Details

Armando Ramírez revisits the golden age of film with this classic film projector, built from various auto parts and pieces of scrap metal. Spark plugs, a pulley from a toy train engine, and the chain and wheel of a motorcycle begin to shape the projector. Several auto parts complete it, such as the ignition wheel of a car, the foot and diaphragm of the clutch pedal, and a bearing from the electrical system.

Please note it is the artist's intention not to give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.

I didnt know until recently that my nephew loves to cook and would love to be a chef. I thought about getting him a cookbook but thought that this is something that will be with him forever. I hope he appreciates it.

"For good luck"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I sent this to my cousin in Colombia; he lives alone but works for the desplazados because of the violence and war. Before the pandemic he would travel to the Magdalena river and would take the most amazing pictures. I hope this inspires him and gives him validation for the what he does.
