These Quirky Sculptures Are Made From the Inner Parts of Ordinary Objects

Dina Amin transforms ordinary objects by taking their inner parts and turning them into art. As Laughing Squid reports, the product designer from Cairo, Egypt produces a YouTube series called “What’s Inside My Stuff?” in which she picks a random product, dismantles it, and uses the hidden screws, bolts, wire, and plastic or metal bits to make small sculptures. The tinkerer posts stop-motion videos of her secondhand creations online, and uses them to address the wasteful nature of consumerism.

“Most of the products you see are old broken products that others decided to throw away,” Amin reflects on her website. “We consume too many things to the point that we forgot the amount of work that was put into bringing even the tiniest pieces of things! We rarely see what's inside each product thus treat it as one whole part; not as a plastic cover, with buttons, vibrator motor, mic and so on.”
