Recycled Computer Parts Robot
Artist: Mark Schropp
Born in Detroit, Mike Schropp has been tinkering with technology and art for decades. His work in experimental computer designs has evolved over the years and spanned numerous changes in technology.
Even old and defunct technologies have value if repurposed in a meaningful way. Modern society teaches us to consume and discard, though this practice is unsustainable. Mark Schropp chose to build a robot from electronic parts he found in the trash to give new purpose to what had been determined to be useless trash.
