The artist is a collector of both old metal tins and old robot and space toys. the merge of these two passions, has created an outstanding upcycling artistic spectacle.
When Daphné Burge was asked what her favourite thing about upcycling was, she referenced the magic. “By looking at items with fresh eyes and a bit of imagination, simple pieces of scrap metal can become fun tin robots that come to life and tell stories of their own. In this way, the upcycling process gives life to otherwise abandoned objects and materials.”
