Afrofuturistic eyewear

IDEA: Afrofuturism in music inspired eyewear photography.

WHAT: Sculptural spectacles made from found cassette tapes and recycled material sourced on the streets of Nairobi.’Throwback’ is one of the photos out of the ‘Njia Ya Maisha Macho Nne’, a portrait of himself.

WHY: A colliding mix between African tradition and plastic materialised recordings.
