Mother Boards as Art Canvases

Craft & Design

When Joe Dragt’s office earmarked some 30 computers to be sent to recycling, he decided to step in and dismantle them himself. He scavenged the mother boards to use as canvases for his paintings.

Seeing the stack of old computers, the idea just struck me…the motherboards can make for a really neat canvas. The complexity and patterns of all the circuits could make for stunning backgrounds. I asked if I could take one computer home for a trial run, and it just blossomed from there.
