Market Estate Project

Yesterday, I paid a little visit to The Market Estate Project and had a glimpse of  life on a delapetated 60's North London housing estate. The old estate will being bulldozed next week to make way for a more modern project, so 20 vacant flats were transformed into exhibition spaces for installation art by different artist. Each flat had a certain theme. On flat that stood out was the Yellow Room where every single item in the installation was painted in bright yellow. Complete with half a knitting project on the chair. Quite creepy and voyeuristic, feeling like you are intruding in somebody's space.

Vintage alarm clocks on Etsy

I just love old gadgets. Some of them make me laugh. Some of them are just so damn cool. Some of them brings back good old memories. These days, we just can't keep up with all the new tech out there, but I've found some gems on Etsy.
