Recycled Computers and Motherboards Transformed into a Massive World Map

This incredible world map brings new life to technology that has since gone bust. Recycling old computer motherboards  and electrical parts, Susan Stockwell  has transformed a bounty of e-waste into a mind-boggling depiction of the world’s continents. Focusing in on theories of geo-politics, trade and global commerce, the UK-based artist repurposed components donated to her by Secure IT Recycling  to create this amazing relief sculpture that speaks volumes about our throw-away culture.
Her efforts to transform uninspiring technological hardware into a beautiful work of art is a subtle and effective mode that points to our society’s issue of waste and consumerism.
