Why throw out or recycle old computer motherboards, when you’ve got the skills to transform them into works of art. That is exactly what artist Joe Dragt has done. Surprisingly (or unsurprisingly) enough, this idea came to him when his employer asked him to recycle 30 old computers. Continue for more pictures and information.

He asked if he could take one of the old computer home, to give his idea a go, and it just blossomed from there. He recycles 100% of the computers he uses, meticulously unscrewing every component. He uses the motherboards as canvases, the cool-looking parts for his sculptures, and sends the rest of the plastic and metal bits to recycling facilities. All potentially harmful elements are taken to a special facility, in Phoenix.
