The Praying Mantis is one of nature’s most impressive creations, a ruthless killer and still very vulnerable. This sculpture does an excellent job of bringing out the form of the mantis, even if its in a robotic package. The robot/ sculpture has been made using random objects like Gas pumps, drafting table hardware, door security peep holes, rod brackets, propane tank, vacuum cleaner bag attachments, LEDs and a whole lot more.

Artist Joe Dragt uses computer components as canvases for his art, creating impressive pieces on the all-powerful motherboard. Not just is his canvas a very unlikely place for art, the complexity of circuits on the motherboards tends to go hand-in-hand with the subject of Dragt’s paintings. He ensures best practices and remembers to recycle computers after he uses their motherboards.
