Steven Rodrig’s vision of the printed circuit board was one of an organic living functioning system compacted into a concise physical universe. Each PCB had a predetermined set of commands meant to perform a specific unction. Because technology is evolving at a rapid rate, new generations of PCBs are created from one moment to the next leaving previous PCB designs outdated. Rather than ending up in a mound of obsolete waste destined to rot in time, there is a recycled life waiting to take on a new organic form. Though not originally meant to be part of a sculpture, the PCB adds a dimension of mechanical beauty unlike any other.
