Even if you aren’t a die-hard Trekkie, you have to admit that this replica of the Starship Enterprise [2] made from old ink cartridges [3] is pretty neat. Artist Faith Pearson took used printer waste and beamed it up(cycled) into a rather convincing model of the futuristic space vessel of Star Trek fame. And she didn’t stop there — she even recreated scenes from two other sci-fi faves – Godzilla and King Kong. Head over to io9 [4] to check out the rest.
