Star Wars Busts Assembled From Discarded Tech Parts [Pics]

Gabriel Dishaw’s sculptures are created using found objects from typewriters, adding machines and old computers.

Sculptor and junk artist Gabriel Dishaw created a series of Star Wars-inspired upcycled art pieces made from old machine parts. The found objects from typewriters, adding machines, computers, capacitors, and airplanes allowed for an innovative and eco-friendly way to use discarded technology. Dishaw writes:

I take the items people no longer have use for and that would normally end up in a landfill and in-turn create something new and upcycled. My mission is to create dialogue and help find creative ways of dealing with this discarded tech in an environmentally sound way.

Dishaw reinterprets characters Darth Vader and C3PO in different styles such as samurai, pygmy and steampunk, with one even inspired by Nike sneakers. Click through to see images of the Star Wars series of upcycled art:
