Beautiful junk

Got an old computer in your attic? Polish artist Anna Dabrowska, also known as Finnabair, would love to smash it to smithereens. The artist uses the computer bits and pieces in her mixed media collages, along with buttons, metal nuts and screws, pieces of lace, photographs, and other ephemera, artificial flowers and occasionally some really weird things, like dead moths (ew). But as you can see, the end result is lovely, really. She says she loves to visit flea markets to find all those unusual objects. When all assembled on a canvas, Dabrowska paints it all in beautifully vibrant colors. I think this is the key to their success—the final touch that makes the collection of stuff a cohesive unit.
