“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.”
After the interesting “chicken sculptures made from eggshells“, British artist Kyle Bean brought us another playful series called “stick insects“. There are three bugs and each one is formed out of headless matches and simply held together with glue. Thanks to the help of photographer Owen Silverwood, we now can enjoy these delicate bugs in photos.
