These Collages Made from Circuit Boards Resemble Complex Maps

Depending on your vantage point, these images of circuit board art can look like aerial maps from afar, or abstract art sculptures up close. When studied even more, Elias Sime’s installations become more impressive. Sime's work is representative of a modernist view of paintings, without the use of paint, but instead discarded computer parts.

Many of Sime's work takes years of collecting and assembly often using whatever scraps she can find and mold into puzzle-like pieces. To create these sculptures, Sim uses a wood backing which she then nails motherboards, circuit boards and various other computer parts to create her inventive collages. The textural detail that Sime achieves creates visually complex sculptures that mirror highly detailed paintings. Sime also strategically groups colors together to create these stunning illusions.
