Argentine jeweller turns tech trash into wearable art

Buenos Aires, Feb 19 (IANS) An Argentine electronic technician and jeweller combines electronics, art and environmental protection together by transforming discarded technological hardware into wearable art, the media reported on Friday.

Hernan Bressan company Electron Memories recycles small electronic components that no one usually notices because they are buried deep inside computers, and turns them into cutting-edge earrings, rings, pendants and key chains.

“It began after I found a computer server that was dropped in the street,” Bressan told Xinhua news agency.

“The server I found was a great computer, and I thought to myself this cannot be dumped in the street,” he said.

That’s when he decided to salvage the parts and give them a new purpose.

He gains inspiration from a range of electronic gadgets such as computer components and mobile phones, and there is no shortage of material for him since new versions of electronic products are constantly being produced.

He hopes his initiative “helps to dissuade people from throwing things out in the street.”

He takes pride in each piece of his electronic art and regards it as “part of my family”.

He currently has seven different collections, all of which combine a passion for technology, art and environmental protection.
