cities built from discarded electronic components

Our world can't exist without all these electronic components where they are found in your phone, to your computer, to even your toys. And technology becomes obsolete fast, so does the component. Once a sought after gadget but soon becomes trash, but one man's trash can be another man's treasure. Here come the cities of electronic components.

Italian artist Franco Recchia delves into the world of technology and the manmade form in his mixed-media sculptures that focus on the urban landscape and related themes. Taking apart old computers, he breathes new life into their component parts by reusing them to build ingenious skylines. Driven by a compelling curiosity to “see what’s inside,” he approaches each subject with that sense of innocent amazement, instinctively following a compositive and rigorous logic until each piece is laid in its correct place. What results are wonderfully distinctive pieces rich in detail, marked by crisp, clean lines and colors that work to delineate the overall composition.
