Resin Stools Filled With Old Technologies

January 31, 2012


Artist Rodrigo Alonso fills square molds with heaps of old technology (read: junk) then pours resin in to create these clear stools. I'm not sure if there's supposed to be a deeper message, but if there is I imagine it's something about how fast technology goes from state-of-the-art to barely worth sitting on. Profound. Still, you know what would be even cooler than a resin stool with pieces of old tech in it? "A bloody stool with pieces of LEGO in it?" What?! NO. Besides, I thought your mom told you to stop eating your toys.

Hit the jump for a bunch more pictures culminating with several of the stool-making process in case this whole "fill a box with junk, then clear plastic" concept is just too hard to wrap your obsolete brain around.
