Recycled Circuitboard Art by Joe Dragt

Arizona artist Joe Dragt is recycling old technology by creating artwork on old circuitboards His on-going circuit board series started in 2011, when his full-time job was about to send more than thirty old computers to a local company for recycling. A professional graphic and web designer, Dragt says"Seeing the stack of old computers, the idea just struck me,” he says. “The motherboards can make for a really neat canvas. The complexity and patterns of all the circuits could make for stunning backgrounds.” Samples of his work can be seen here: http://www.tomorrowandbeyond.com/circuit_board_art_of_joe_dragt.php and in a recent online Wired magazine blog article: http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2011/08/scrap-electronics-as-art/
