Erik Jensen, who's medium is computer keys popped of a keyboard has shown just that! Keyboards often are a commodity that lands in landfills. So Erik salvages the keyboard keys, dyes them, then lays and glues them into designs that become art!
Reminds me of Lego Artist Nathan Sawaya and the maker movement!!
You definitely need to check out his website to see the breadth of his work. A mosaic in keyboard keys (some of which you might recognize.) Cheers to Erik & his upcycled art!
