2019 was a very special year for me.
I presented my upcycling works for the first time to the public at two Maker Faires:
- Make Munich in March 2019
- Maker Faire Hannover in August 2019
Both events have been a very intense and positive experience.
In 2019 I created 13 new upcycling works which gave me great satisfaction and fulfilment. I started to work with Nixie tubes. The IN-18 Nixies are so awesome!
I used antique devices e.g. old electrical measuring devices, typewriters. cameras, fans, tube radios and medical lamps.
