e-Waste Art

Designers creating artwork out of electronic junk
Implications - An increasing number of eco-minded artists are applying the method of upcycling to their creations, with e-waste -- used tech devices, old computer parts, telephone cables, keyboards and the like -- as the primary components of their artwork. Everything from furniture to portraits are being made out of electronic junk, which offers an eco-friendly alternative to the traditional disposal of tech products, and gives green consumers with a passion for technology a unique way to decorate their homes.
