"Dead Reckoning" is the name of Chicago-based artist Michael Dinges' latest exhibition. The name Dead Reckoning comes from a time when shipmates used charts and instruments to track their positions.

The items shown in this fascinating exhibit consist of engraved Apple laptops and brass recreations of historical nautical instruments. The laptop's surfaces have been lavishly etched and decorated with images of animals, seafaring creatures and other iconic images and symbols.

Implications - Dinges has successfully produced an interesting and artistic portrayal of the evolution of technology. His pieces look like they took a long time to make because of all the intricate detail. Michael Dinges’ work is currently being shown at the Packer Schopf Gallery in Chicago.
