Do you remember those old and noisy computer keyboards halfway on the evolutionary path between typewriters and the touchscreen. What did you do with them? Throw away? Just don’t! The better answer is recycling. American artist Sarah Frost from Saint Louis came up with that great idea: putting tens of thousands of used keyboard buttons on a wall. Have a closer look, then step back and enjoy the larger pattern. Sarah’s current work examines our culture through the collection of its remains, such as consumer objects and discarded packaging (not only keyboards). A permanent installation of her Qwerty art can be found at The James Hotel in New York. Enjoy!
