“Computer Component Bugs”, is another great example of recycled art, which are beautiful miniature sculptures of winged insects created by UK-based artist Julie Alice Chappell using circuit boards found inside discarded electronics. To build a tiny insect like below, Chappell needs to break down the circuit borads and find propery components based on their pattern then patiently put them together to create vivid bugs. When asked why she used material like that, artist said “The recycled bits of cultural refuse that are woven throughout my work represent a direct encounter with the excesses of modern living highlighting the dangers of planned obsolescence and e-waste in the environment. The work displays an aesthetic beauty whilst offering a socio-political discourse, attempting to reclaim waste and the destruction of the natural world, in the beauty of visual art.”
Made by “merryme”, the mysterious artist behind the DAINTYme store on etsy, these enamel three-piece rings will drive your finger wild. These clever designed rings can be worn on one finger to form an animal, like the cat, deer or fox ring or worn on three finger to make it look like the animal is doing something fun, like the squirrel after an acorn. With the holidays approaching, this is definitely something worth keeping in mind when you start brainstorming unique gifts.
