Little Cities Inside Electronics.

I am currently in the Ottawa airport, and they are showcasing the work of artist Marcus Lamoureux (work above). The collection on display is made with old electronics parts. I was struck by how, lacking any scale, they resembled small cities when viewed up close.

This image made me think of a map of an island industrial district - Annacis island, or the like.

The whole concept reminds me of a video I once viewed of Bjork explaining how a television works. She is so cute... Watch it here.
