Artists Recycles Motherboards by Using Them as Canvases for Pretty Paintings

Arizona-based artist Joe Dragt discovered a solution to an issue we all tend to have in this modern age: What to do with old, unused computer parts. He turned them into art, of course! When his job required him to recycle 30 old computers, Dragt got the idea to use the discarded motherboards as canvases for paintings, as he felt the complexity of the circuitry would make for interesting backgrounds. He asked to take one of the computers home, and the pretty paintings seen above and below are the result.

Dragt’s series is currently ongoing, and you can view the pieces at his website, as well as purchase some original work.
