Electric Ecology is a set of technology paintings that show what happens to old and forgotten technology long after they become obsolete. The painting series was made by Ruth Whiting and comprises different styles of oil painting.

In a world where the turnover for technology is only rising, we're collecting old pieces of tech at an alarming rate. These technology paintings show that even though they may not be getting much use from us currently, they still live on in their own world.

The images are slightly surreal in form and see things like USB and VGA cables among other unused pieces of tech. The colors are bright but the vibe is grainier, providing a strange and grimy contrast to the vibrant visuals.
