    I like the comparison he made and people do have a tendency to want the newest the fastest

  4. Katie

    I’m more impressed with the deep fried lettering.

    best way to ditch the gadgets! ;)

    the charger on the macbook is fake, it should go in on the other side and be much more beautiful designed, and not have that magnet thing around

    To those that are worried, I suspect that most of these are just photographic tricks. Note things like the macbook cord and iPod headphones going into the wrong part of the device. ANd notice that all of the screens are functioning, which they certainly wouldn’t do if they were put in hot oil.

    Looking at this guy’s other work on his website I have to admit there’s not one piece of work that captures my thoughts, imagination and feelings. This is the type of work I would normally see from a fledgling artist/photographer. Reasonably good quality but lacks serious substance.

    @Just Escaped

    I definitely agree with Just Escaped on this guy’s other works. Sure there is a theme going on, but it doesn’t evoke any impression on the spectator.

    Also, most of these electronics look fake. Example, the MacBook keyboard looks like a print out glued onto a piece of cardboard. Look at the outlines of the keys.

  19. Brian K

    It’s been stated elsewhere that he didn’t use real electronics for the work, due to the dangers of frying them in hot oil.

  20. Stacey M.

    This makes me want to puke.

  21. Alex

    Since he didn’t actually waste real electronics (there are tell-tale signs indicating they are fake not to mention Brian’s comment) I rather like it. No, it’s not mind-blowingly insightful, but he does make a good point.

  22. Amy

    Oh, the silly things people waste their time on.

  23. Libeerian

    @pTc — lol.

  24. Christian

    how about a making of?
