Tapete by Federico Uribe, an artist born in Bogota, Colombia, and based in Miami, Florida, may look like a rich Persian rug, but it is entirely deceiving. Instead of being expertly handwoven out of traditional wool, this ornate carpet is made out of perfectly placed computer components including fans, cables, keyboard keys, motherboards and mice (not of the squeaky variety).

A stunning work of art, Tapete by Federico Uribe shows people just how colorful the inner workings of a computer are, not just how complex. Considering the prevalent pattern used throughout, people are also granted a glimpse into the similarity between different computers.

On a more general note, however, Tapete by Federico Uribe is beautiful to behold. It deconstructs a cold, hard machine to create something full of warmth and creativity.
