trojan keysRemember the mirrored horse sculpture at the lobby of the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, which is situated right under the Fiori di Como? Well, I guess you can say that what you see above is not that stunning, but it is still a piece of artwork that is worth looking at – more than once, definitely. Artist Babis Panagiotidis can answer the question, “Where do keyboards go when they die?” with confidence with his piece of work that is called “Hedonism(y) Trojaner”. This is a massive resin rocking horse that comes encrusted with more than 18,000 recycled computer keyboard keys, now how about that?

Needless to say, it was modeled after the Trojan Horse, and if you love to read between the lines, you can go ahead and speculate on how the number of Trojan Horses that have attacked the computer platform ever since the virus went digital might actually have been the inspiration for such a piece of art. What other kinds of sculptures would you like to see through the clever use of recycled computer parts? It should be able to help keep our landfills less full, as many small differences make a big one.
