Andrea Petrachi’s Cyber Sculptures: Bizarre Reminders of Our Wastefulness

by Lambert Varias

Andrea Petrachi aka Himatic is the bizarro equivalent of that bad kid in the original Toy Story movie who enjoys torturing and destroying his toys. What Himatic does is create what he calls “cyber sculptures” out of discarded electronics, gadgets and toys. His creations look a lot like the Toy Story villain’s toys – ugly and pathetic at first glance, but soon evoke feelings of pity and guilt.

Himatic creates these figures not only to recycle, but also to remind us of our “out-of-control desire to buy things”, and the waste we accumulate in the process. In effect, Himatic isn’t the only creator of these grotesque figures. We all helped make these things.

It is quite depressing to realize that we’ve mastered how to mass produce things but have yet to come up with safe and efficient methods of mass disposal. Check out Himatic’s website to see more of his work.
