Computer Component Bugs: Wasteamorphosis

by Lambert Varias

The words “computer” and “bug” often mean bad news when mentioned in the same sentence, but it’s not the case here. Artist Julie Alice Chappell’s Computer Component Bugs are sculptures of insect-like creatures that she makes out of discarded components and parts from obsolete gadgets.

Julie hopes that her one-of-a-kind artworks will remind us that we are facing a growing electronic waste problem. While electronics manufacturers shoulder a large part of the blame,  we can all do our part by taking care of our existing gadgets, making sure we use them as long as possible or reusing them in creative ways like Julie does.

You can buy Julie’s sculptures on her Etsy shop. Prices depend on the item but the ones that are featured here go for between about $120 to $260(USD).
