Forget the 'Does This Blend?' guy, because Michael Tompert's art gallery puts him to shame. Tompert takes Apple products and beats the bejesus out of them to present them as art. Actually, "beating" is a huge understatement. Tompert has used sledgehammers, blowtorches, handsaws, a 9mm Heckler gun, a Koch handgun and anything else he can get his hands on to destroy iPods and MacBooks.

The show is called 12LVE and takes place at Live Worms Gallery in San Francisco. Unfortunately, the exhibition will close on Sunday, November 14th, but at least you can view Michael Tompert's work online. Stats for Dissected Gadgets Trending: Older & Average
