I love these beautiful bugs made from
recycled computer and electronics components. They were created for the project
Computer Component Bugs by Julie Alice Chappell.
With all their tiny components, complex circuitry and bright metallic colours I cannot help but compare them to the detailed patterns we see when we look at nature up close.”Chappell wrote on Permaculture.
For Chappell the fact these bugs are environmentally friendly made is important. Her first batch of electronics came from the Beneficial Foundation (also known as “The Craft’s Bank”) in Portsmouth, which distributes electronic no longer wanted by companies to various art related groups. She also finds computers and electronics just discarded all over the place.
