Conceptual-based sculptor, mixed media and installation artist Peter McFarlane has been producing an intriguing series of circuit board fossils, paintings and sculptures that all use found objects.

Using objects that others would just throw out, McFarlane creates beautiful masterpieces out of circuit boards. They feature the exoskeletons of various animals like a lizard, a fish or a snake; others use wires and metal to create features or a bird's nest.

McFarlane states on his site, "To me, waste is just lack of imagination...No object is beyond artistic merit, meaning and metaphor. So why throw it out?" He also has a great collection of chainsaw sculptures that were just on display at the Pegasus Gallery in Salt Sprints Island, British Columbia.
