Hardware for Thoughts is a sculptural installation constructed from exposed computer debris (34 computers), cables, screens, plastic objects and crafts.
Some of the desktop computers are still operational and teeming with life, producing a malfunction signal (similar to the sound of the heart monitor, a mechanical sensor that represents biological vitality).
The laptops are staged in different compositions examining their potential as portable devices, some of the computer screens are manipulated, transformed physically creating a new and charged state.
The multi-organ, modular-system creates a feedback loop, incorporating crude raw materials into a low tech appearance comprised of high tech elements and refined subtle details.
