This series by Gérard Haas is many things at once--functional and avant garde, elegant and expressive--thanks to the artist's surprising use of reclaimed materials. Finding beauty in discarded computer equipment (amid the anxiety of the computer's growing ubiquity), Haas found a way to create something aesthetic out of something meant to be hidden. With light shining through what are supposed to be the unseen innards of technology, Haas illuminates for us the underside of innovation.
