Junk Art By Gabriel Dishaw

Gabriel Dishaw is an artist who creates sculptures that everyone can understand and relate to by using found pieces of metals and insignificiant objects. "Using found objects from typewriters, adding machines and old computers, he takes the items people no longer have use for and he carefully disassembles these items and then reassembles these together using metal wire creating his Junk Art." In his webpage, you can see his work created by this unique idea and extraordinary patience for assembling.
Below sculpture, Junk Dunk (Left), is a metal Nike shoe made of circuit boards. I think it could be a great inspiration for Nike designers as it has such a good color combination and surface pattern.
