Computer Bugs

Is there a bug is your system? If not, you can get one from artist Julie Alice Chappell. Her Etsy shop has several models of insects hand-crafted from old computer parts. Take, for example, this blue-winged butterfly.

The Sky Blue Winged Short Bodied Butterfly has been thoughtfully fabricated from circuit board components from inside obsolete computers and printers. Delicate circuit board patterns make his tiny wing veins and he is embellished with blue glass jewels as his eyes. He has a 12.5cm wingspam and his box frame measures 19cm squared. He is settle on a complimentary blue and pale cream symmetrical pattern. The art of upcycling, helping to raise awareness of e-waste in the environment.

There are only a few available, and each is a one-of-a-kind artwork. See the rest of them at Chappell’s Etsy store. -via Boing Boing
