E-Waste Art at its best!

E-Waste Art at its best!

Jason Mecier, just finished a new e-waste art portrait of the late tech god Steve Jobs from 20 pounds of “e-waste.” Look closely and you can see bits of cell phones, iPods, headphones, Macintosh keyboards, CD-Rs, batteries, mice, memory sticks, and other upcycled trash from Apple. It took Mecier 40 hours to put these pieces together. But as with everything Mecier creates, the real thrill is in watching junky elements combine to create a colorful portrait of an icon.

He’s used beans and noodles to celebrate television personalities, candy on caricatures of (mostly) music celebs, random food stuffs for random famous folks, and junk for other infamous and historic figures. He’s also done some work in a private residence – the fantastic Granny’s Empire of Art, where we co-hosted a pop-up art show a couple years ago. I first became of fan of his work, though, at a Scissor Sisters show years ago, when the Warfield displayed his portrait of the band made completely from beauty products.
