Tired of watching that pile of old computer gear grow ever taller in the dark side of your loft but reluctant to bin it? There’s a new hope…

One plucky American sculpture artist has managed to solve that thorny problem with a project that sees him upcycle tech junk into busts of figures from the Star Wars franchise.

Dusting off old typewriters, rickety hard drives and broken keyboards, Gabriel Dishaw uses wire to create some hard-wired folk from George Lucas’s sci-fi spectacular for Junk Art, including Darth Vader, Bobba Fett, Darth Vader and C3P0.

Inadvertently, there’s something of a steampunk feel to these utterly brilliant pieces, each component looking oddly at home on a bust of a fictional character. You can see more of over at Dishaw’s page over on Behance.
