Reduce, Re-use, Recycle

cdrom clock 520x400 Reduce, Re use, RecycleAri Krupnik is proof that you can make anything out of anything.

Ari Krupnik is a software engineer in Silicon Valley, but he’s also an artist. We’ve reached a point where CDs and DVDs are old news and, essentially, junk. But Ari couldn’t get himself to throw away all the old ROMs: “I have good experience using CNC machines for artwork and to make parts for my airplanes. I want to translate this experience into a process for cutting old CDs into new, useful things. I take a stack of CDs and make a clock out of them, hands and all. I hang it above my desk to remind me when’s a good time to work on this project.” He’s also created his own Spirographs in another effort to recycle old technology. He even lets you name the price to purchase this stuff! Niiiiiice.

Ari’s “Pixel Mosaics” collection features portraits made from dice, bullet casings and M & Ms (check out Uma Thurman in M & M form in the gallery). His dice mosaics use anywhere between a couple hundred and a couple thousand die. The Eric S. Raymond (2008) mosaic consists of around seven thousand .40 brass casings and weights 40 pounds.

  • maximuscle cyclone alternatives

    Cyclone [Maximuscle]: Used it for 2 months and noticed good results after first 10 days of working hard in gym. I find it a good alternative to measuring out creatine and protein mix seperately but hey these products are all about convenience right I take it for brekky each day but it takes discipline to not still snack as it doesnt fill you up by any means. I feel more full if mix it with a banana, glass of fresh orange, 1 activia and 1 actimel each morning. It takes about 5 mins and makes me feel healthy but who knows. Good luck.

    Put simply, “Insurance” is the payment of a small predictable amount of money (“premium”) to protect against a larger unpredictable expense (“loss/claim”).This transfers the risk from you to the insurance company for a fee. This protection comes in several ways.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
