A different take on recycling PCBs

There are very few electronic devices today that manage to get by without a PCB inside. And very few of us would associate PCBs with art work I should think, but take a look.
Quite a number of electronic gadgets end up in obscure dumping sites in developing countries. There are alternatives; as we have seen from mobile phones the other day. Recycling has become more than a passing fad. Here is yet another take on recycling.

At first glance, printed circuit boards may not recommend themselves as artwork to more than a few of us. But on closer inspection, PCBs do have quite a simplistic and precise beauty to them. Theo Kamecke is turning vintage printed circuit boards into little (and bigger) pieces of art.

He takes the conductors off the board and affixes them—through using a technique called marquetry—to hardwood to create the effect of polished metal on stone. The result are astonishing sculptures, chests, etc. Quite a number of people have bought Kamecke's work, including Hollywood director James Cameron.

So, if you have a few thousand USD in your piggy bank and are in lack of something interesting to do with it! Here is an option.
