I took this photo of my grandfather before he moved from his old home (where he’s been living for the last 50 years) to a new one. This seven square foot sized room is his workplace, and this thing he’s repairing is his first radio that he made back in the days.
During my childhood I’ve passed days and days looking at him working, soldering, repairing, inventing so much stuff I can’t even remember… what he needed he would make it, that’s it. The ideia of DIY grew up on me since the beginning of my existence, and thanks to him I have the feeling that nothing is impossible.
Most of the work done by me as been created with the help of some gadget that I made for that specific purpose. So I felt the need to immortalise this moment.

I printed some nice “hipstery” accessories on paperboard and applied a slim wire so my friends could hold them, took advantage of our xmas yearly dinner, and the rest was all fun!
