Found objects gathered from the streets of Nairobi... Kabiru then bends, molds, folds, punches, cuts and combines to create incredible bi-focals that suggest an aesthetic that combines afropunk, afrofutursim and steampunk.

"C-STUNNERS have a certain energy and playfulness that really captures the sensibility and attitude of a youth generation in Nairobi. They portray the aspiration of popular culture bling; they reflect the ingenuity and resourcefulness of people; the lenses provide a new filter giving a fresh perspective onto the world that we live in transforming the wearer not only in appearance but in mind frame as well."

"The work sits itself between fashion, wearable art, performance, and one of a kind commodity objects."
