According to my mother, at the age of 1, I built a plane on the floor of my house using matchsticks. When my mom saw the plane, she couldn’t believe it. She messed up all the matchsticks and watched if I could remake the plane. And then I designed another plane. Of course, I don’t remember that time, but I have memories of my 8 year old self being already interested in creating things.
At this time, instead of asking for toys, I started to create my own toys. So, I began to create and assemble objects and characters from films like the sword of the ‘Thundercats’ that increased in size, The DeLorean of ‘Back to the Future’ with the wheels that turned down, the cyborg of the film ‘Robocop’ with the gun that comes out of the inside of the leg.
Everything I did was functional as in the movies and cartoons. Over time, I stopped copying the things I saw on TV, and started to create toys that didn’t exist. The interest in creating things has become part of my life since then.
