Smashed Apple stuff displayed as modern art

13 November 2010

Here’s something for the handful of you among our readership that are haters of all things Apple. It’s an exhibition of some of the Cupertino-based technology concern’s finest gadgets that have been systematically destroyed by artist Michael Tompert.

Below, we can see a MacBook Air that has been shot with a 9mm Heckler & Koch handgun, an iPhone 4 that has been smashed to smithereens with a 8 lb Sledge Maul and a Magic Mouse cut to death by a handsaw.

So is it art, or just some chump fannying about like a tit? We welcome your thoughts....

    I like it on two levels, because Apple stuff is overpriced overhyped tat and that someone has destroyed some and also because some tit has destroyed his overpriced tat.

    Don't you just love people who get to decide what is art and what isn't. Know who else had that mindset? Hitler. Authoritarian shits.
