Most people buy antiques at flea markets or unearth them in their attic after years. Maico Akiba, however, makes his own. Using brand new electronics, clothes and other staple goods, he then speeds up the process of time by adding rust and moss, and chipping away at the items until they look one hundred years old. The best part is, they’re still fully functional.
