Although we just covered the work of Federico Uribe a few days ago in this space, the artist also shared with me this additional work which I thought warranted its own post. Titled Tapete (Carpet) the work is a large carpet made from thousands of perfectly placed computer components: fans, cables, keyboard keys, motherboards, mice, and other parts. I recommend not wiping your feet here. Photography by Pipe Yanguas.
