Los Boludos are among us and have come to stay!
“Pioneers of a forgotten technology, displaced by modernity, los Boludos lay dormant in the bowels of an old black & white television that was last switched off in the year 1980. These strange, curious, and amusing creatures are outcasts of the technological world but are determined to find out just where it is they belong.”
Each Los Boludos is hand-crafted and numbered by the designer. The body of the Boludo is an original electron tube from an old television set. The eyes are small rubber springs originally found under the keys in old computer keyboards. The nose and mouth come from manufacturing parts for clothing and accessories.
