Marek Tomasik Covers an Entire Room in Old Computer Parts

Polish sculptor Marek Tomasik has done his part to keep old computers out of with his art installation 'You Sometimes Have To Be Open.' The installation is actually a room made entirely out of wood and old computer parts.

The room is 16-feet-long and 13-feet-wide with a 15-foot ceiling. Every inch of the room, save for the floor, is covered with old computer cases and parts. The meaning behind the installation is unknown to those who don't speak Polish, but I can imagine that the artist was tired of hearing about landfills clogged with old tech and decided to take a stand. Regardless of his reason, Marek Tomasik has created something truly unique. You can check out stills or a video of 'You Sometimes Have To Be Open' here.
