Our featured “Big Build” artist is on Wired today! – Vintage Circuit Boards Create Stunning Sculptures @ Wired.com…
At first glance, electronic circuit boards may seem as far from art as you can get. But look closer, and the boards have patterns, horizontal and vertical grids that have a strange, precise beauty to them.
It’s the kind of beauty that we perceive in the whorls of a seashell or a grain of wood, says Theo Kamecke, an artist who is taking vintage circuit boards and transforming them into pieces that can adorn homes and galleries.
Kamecke has harvested the etching from the boards, then affixed them to hardwood to create the effect of polished metal on stone.
The results are exquisitely decorated chests, sculptures and boxes.
“Either you get it or you don’t, either you like it or you don’t,” says Kamecke. “I don’t mass-produce these, and no one else makes them.”
