I remember a long time ago when a co-worker's tower computer broke down and when asked what he would do with it, he answered something like "a pot." In his day he was quite funny, but that is exactly what the french artist Christophe Guinet, take advantage of the external part of some Apple computer equipment for something very different from what they were created for.
The idea of this French artist from Paris, although jokes were made with it years ago, was to take several Mac that have already become classic or vintage, such as the iMac G3 and iMac G5, and turn them into pots. But if you think any of us could do the same as Guinet, check out the following gallery and see how you change your mind.
Macs Garden Gallery by Christophe Guinet, French artist
The old Macintosh Classic, for example, has a small bonsai tree sprouting outward from the top. The soil and roots can be seen through the screen – or, well, where it used to be – while a small sample grows on the mouse that is nearby. Some, like the iMac G3, contain foliage perfectly inside their original housing. Others, such as the iMac G5 and the PowerBook, have their new companions that leave the screen spectacularly.
I can't agree more with the last sentence. Somehow, the effect it seems as if the computer is emitting a three-dimensional image, something that logically is not possible in any AIO or portable computer in the world. It is clear that some of the pots that the French artist has created are better than others, but I have doubts about whether any would look good in my living room. In any case it is a good way to make those computers go to a better life.
