Sculpture: Computer Component Bugs

Julie Alice Chappell has created this series of insect sculptures from recycled circuit boards and other computer components to raise awareness of environmental waste.

"My art practice involves breaking down the pre-existing materials, reinterpreting them and offering them a new form with new purpose, creating something beautiful, whimsical and precious." explains Chappell in a Permaculture article unveiling the series.

"The recycled bits of cultural refuse that are woven throughout my work represent a direct encounter with the excesses of modern living highlighting the dangers of planned obsolescence and e-waste in the environment. The work displays an aesthetic beauty whilst offering a socio-political discourse, attempting to reclaim waste and the destruction of the natural world, in the beauty of visual art."
