In my opinion Andrew Smith has cracked it. As a child I spent hours creating and inventing with Lego, Mechano or just good old fashioned wood and nails. I find myself wishing that I could have carried on doing this forever; that I could make a living from play. Andrew’s recycled, kinetic art echos a mad-max-esque visual aesthetic and speaks volumes in terms of a “throw away society.” I especially like his observation in to the way in which value of an object is defined by how much somebody else wants that object.

“A lot of times as soon as somebody knows you want something they want you to pay for it, when they wanted to get rid of it in the first place”

Check out Andrews work on his site.
