This computer sculpture is made from wood and metal.
The motherboard has been salvaged from a laptop and the result is a very efficient one of a kind
computer since its mechanism being out of the frame it doesn't encounter overheating problems like most computers usually do.
Its design is light and minimalistic.

I have been a drawing artist for many years now but I recently decided to change a bit my field
and turned to a particular type of sculpture.
I have always loved science and research as well as art and literature.
I managed to combine my passions in "computer art works" which are computers sculptures made
from salvaged laptops. After passing between my hands, these computers that for some I repair and
which are all functional, acquire a very strong aesthetic, something I pull from their guts.This is
probably because I come from Paris and the Pompidou Center Museum has an aesthetic that
influenced me a lot. This building, of which Renzo Piano has chosen to highlight the internal
structures that used to be hidden inside.
I, too, see great beauty in the internal parts of computers, and I consider that they are a marvel of
design in the same way that a painting can be an artistic miracle. Often people don't appreciate the
aesthetic power of science and technology, because there is an illegitimate separation between the
world of beauty governed by the arts and the method world ruled by science. I hope to build more
bridges between these two universes showing through my computers the aesthetic nature involved
in science and technology.
Because great science requires genius and genius is always a thought crossed by an aesthetic
vision.
I view my art computers as paintings or sculptures to be exposed in an interior. But at the same
time, they are functional computers and intended for daily use.
In my online teaching practice I have personally witnessed how we spend more and more time in
front of screens, whether for work or play. And I am sure all of us who work a lot with our personal
computers end up having an emotional relationship with our machine.
In addition, the wave of covid19 has fostered intense growth in already well-established online
work, and more and more people are working from home in front of their computer. Everything
tends to lead us to an increasingly intertwined relationship with our computers.
This is often seen as a paradox, since computers give us a certain form of freedom, allowing us to
work from a chosen place and at the time we want, but at the same time we always feel more
hostages of this connected tool and the digital society.
By taking the computer out of its box and exposing its internal organs, I intitiate two movements,
the first is aesthetic as I have just described. The second is a movement of knowledge, or
familiarization, or de-dramatization. For many users, a computer works like a magic box because
they have little or no knowledge of its internal workings. So it turns out that the greatest fear to
about a computer is that it crashes. But it is a fear due to the ignorance of computers, since by
learning a little about their architecture, we discover that almost all their components are
interchangeable.
This is how a work of objectification is done on the object which is no longer sacred and which
can be appreciated at its fair value for the technological prowess it represents and the beauty that
this technique implies.
Finally, I want to highlight a very interesting fact about this work. The biggest problem with
computers, especially laptops - and a problem with machines in general - is overheating. The
computers are equipped with sophisticated temperature control systems to prevent the overheating
of their sensitive components and the irreversible damage that could result from this excess heat.
The computer therefore constantly adapts its efforts to its own temperature. It is somewhat ironic
that taking them out of their box and showing their mechanism that the manufacturers seek to hide -
mainly for reasons of ergonomics and transport - the computer becomes much more efficient by
eliminating the vast majority of excessive heat issues.
Thus, sculpted computers are faster and more efficient than when they were in
their frame.
By giving them more oxygen, we also give them more life.

I'm Orlando. Originally hailing from Paris, I've since made Japan my home after spending considerable time in Barcelona. Despite my background in law and political science, my passion ultimately led me down the path of writing and drawing. Art has always captivated me, particularly the intricate nuances of Japanese visual culture, including their renowned prints, which significantly influenced my decision to delve into drawing. My self-taught artistic journey spans over a decade now, shaped by my experiences in Japan and my affinity for storytelling through lines, capturing the simplicity and beauty of everyday life. I find immense joy in sketching from the photographs I capture during my travels. Whether through bold strokes of black ink accentuated with watercolors to breathe life into my subjects or through the serene elegance of monochrome tones, my work is always characterized by meticulous attention to detail. Paper holds a special place in my creative process, serving as my primary medium. I'm deeply enamored with its subtle texture and unparalleled precision. My tools range from black felt pens to Indian ink, while I employ the dry watercolor technique to infuse vibrant hues into my compositions. The paintings and drawings showcased on this platform are available for purchase, and I welcome inquiries for more detailed views before making a selection. Thank you for visiting, and I hope you find delight in exploring my artistic endeavors.
