Nifty computer skylines


Taking apart old computers is a task usually reserved for tech geeks or crazy people.

But Italian artist Franco Recchia has managed to lift the lid of his PC and create some distinctive art as a result. His urban landscapes are driven by a curiosity to "see what's inside", something we can all empathise with.

While we might have experienced electric shocks or an embarrassed call to PC World, Recchia's mixed-media sculptures have gained him fame and an exhibition in New York.

Don't go trying nothing, mind...
