OK, so obviously your old PCs can’t become a real sunset, at least not without some serious Harry Potter-style intervention. However, “Mauritian Sunset” is the name of this art installation where they put together a whole wall of old PCs and monitors to approximate a sunset.
Artist Sandy Smith is responsible for this technological masterpiece. She made it for the Embassy Gallery in Edinburgh, Scotland, and since the gallery had a whole bunch of windows she had to make a totally solid and light-proof wall to achieve the effect.
The monitors were donated by the Glasgow School of Art. While the colorful sunset side of this piece is pretty to look at, my inner geek self is loving these shots of the back of this installation even more!
