What's This?

Take a moment to guess what this is before I tell you...

We saw this in Genova, in an art exhibit called "Dumping Art" at the Palazzo Ducale. This exhibit was cool for a couple of reasons:
1. The art was all made of things that people had scavenged from the trash or recycling, and it was all amazing.
2. Brandon's "Unit of Inquiry" at school right now is all about Recycling, Reducing, Reusing - so this fit in perfectly. He actually created a presentation with my pictures in Powerpoint and emailed it to his teacher to present in class. 21st century grade school!

So, what is it? It is old computer printed circuit boards, like CPU boards. They are painted black with the different components and connectors painted in day-glo colors that show up in black light. They are then arranged to form a column, with mirrors on the top and bottom which made it look like it extended forever when shown in the dark with only black light on it. It was super creative and fun.

That's what I love about Italy, when you explore, you just never know what you are going to run across!
