Panorama of cities from computer parts
Italian artist Franco Recchia saw inmicrochips, slats and other details of the system block outlines of the big city. In his skilful hands, small sculptures appeared - panoramas of large metropolises of the world from computer parts. For their creation, not one dozen old computers, TV sets, tape recorders and other devices were needed. Different quarters of Manhattan, Detroit, Beijing,futuristic outlines of future cities consist of an incredible combination of schemes and other details. According to the official press release from the last exhibition: "Franco Recchia seeks to give a little dignity to contemporary art, to focus on the fact that in every subject created by the hands of man, there is talent, imagination and extraordinary beauty, stemming from the vast reservoir of human experience." Each work demonstrates incredible attention to detail, meticulous execution of subtle works. It's nice to look at sculptures and look for original images of the city! Now a lot of physically and morally obsoletecomputers are simply thrown away. Such crafts are an excellent example of re-using junk in the aesthetic purposes of art. I think that many people can create by their own hands a similar silhouette of their native city!
