This penguin is one of my first works. A quick composed, roughly glued penguin made from old electronic devices. For this project, I mainly used Philips shaving kits. I made this piece during my work at the Ontdekfabriek in Eindhoven (the Netherlands), while giving workshops in recycling I glued this animal together in the meantime. Please check my other sculptures and like and share!
Hobbelman’s feeling for style and composition stand out brilliantly in his new project Animaux. Hobbelman uses old, discarded electronic devices and turns them into figures of animals. For years he has been working at the ‘Ontdekfabriek’ (Discovery Factory) in Eindhoven, where he gave workshops for children in which he used e-waste to assemble small robots. At the moment, Tim works from home and finds most of his materials in second hand shops. He is a polite, friendly guy: “I do think what I make is a form of art, but to say it’s art…?”
