Time goes by but some memories never die! Scenes which are safe in our heads,
moments that seem to be only a few days ago although many years have passed by
since we experienced those. And, some things, smells or noises make us recalling
such scenes inevitably. For instance seeing the car that we drove first. Some
people preserve that memories storing their first car or one of that type as a
classic and as the place of their first kiss - but very probably as the place of
the first time of something different.
However, we tend to mainly recall positive experiences which is why we'd like to
remember the years we have left behind us as the good old times although we
possibly had to stand trial and had to work much harder than today. But sometimes
only details revive memory and preserving details might be less expensive than
storing the whole object.
One of those people who are inspired by the beauty of details is the German
artist Schmidt-Kult. On the lookout for new material from the automobile good
old times he also searches for new purposes for them and merges a few of our road
traffic's leftover to a completely new piece of art. By the help of screw
driver, wrench, grinder and welding torch he painstakingly creates items that we
can use every day and which possibly revive impressions in us at the same time.
Besides a Jaguar E-Type rear that has turned into a cupboard and a standard lamp
created using parts of a Citroen DS's head lamps, even supposed unnecessary
waste as rust particles will turn into something useful, swimming in a glass of
hydraulic oil as a paperweight.
Maybe, if you're just not satisfied seeing the creations, Schmidt-Kult's
website will inspire you to make your own pieces that recall moments you like to
remind. At any rate you should have seen this site. Although it has no language
selection it doesn't lack words because it lets speak the pictures. That's why
we save any further spells recommending this site which perhaps excites memories
in you too.
