Random Toy collages
This project is very important for me in terms of being separated from individualism. 

I was collecting toys for a very long time. The toys i was collecting were very random toys from very different companies, situations and people.  In this period of time i was suffering from being bored of looking at them. I was getting bored of putting a lot of meanings and definitions on them. They were very hard to carry when i wanted to move from one location to an other one. Nothing good was coming from the toys. I was creating my own illusional popular trends on my mind and i was running away from these trends. I was digging out new toys, collector items also artists working on toys. I felt very heavy with collecting them.  Liking a toy and being bond to it was very stupid. I gave away a lot of my unwanted toys to my friends. After i while i wanted to get rid all of them but there were still a lot of toys and it was very hard to find people to sell.

For this reason i started to break them apart. I have started with the most expensive one. It felt so gooood. I thought i have found the true meaning of having a toy. I cut them, butchered them take apart all the precious parts heads legs. It was wonderful. I had a big smile on my face while breaking them apart. I was hating fragile toys for a very very long time. So i started to make combinations. I drilled a lot of holes and used rusted screws to put them together. Now all of the toys are very strong and very hard to break them apart and very freaky looking. Now they are at least worth and i can put them on exhibitions.

I am having a lot fun from receiving messages from hater collectors. Dude a plastic old school figure will bring you nothing, trust me. It is better to know it not possess it.
