Have an old game console lying around? Instead of throwing it away, consider making bugs out of it!
That is what UK artist Julie Alice Chappell did. According to ign.com, “Chappell came across a big box of electronic components, and eventually started creating bug sculptures while enrolled on a Fine Arts degree.”
The “Nintendo Bug” sculptures are primarily made out of old circuit boards from discarded Nintendo consoles. And these sculptures aren’t just cool to look at: they also serve as an important reminder of the dangers of e-waste in our environment. They are also beautiful to look at with vibrant colors and intricate details.
What do you think? Will you be repurposing your old game consoles to create “Nintendo Bugs”?
