Artworks Made from Computer Keyboards

Tuesday, June 1, 2010

Many decades ago, when typewriters were more common than the computer or its keyboard, learning how to type was a great deal. In fact, many people would enroll in typing classes so that they could learn how to type, which may now sound like an absurd idea.

However, with the advent of computers a few decades ago, most people began to realize that the QWERTY keyboards aren’t exotic but were now here to stay. Now, computer keyboards are so omnipresent that they have almost become the universal mode of communication, and the QWERTY keypad can be seen on not just computers but also cellphones, and other devices. Let us now take a look at 22 Computer Keyboard Artworks inspired by the ubiquitous QWERTY keyboard we have grown to know so well.

"Viper Snake Sculpture Using a Keyboard"
The Viper Snake Sculpture has been created using various QWERTY keyboard keys, and it almost looks real. The snake sculpture also comes with a scary tongue that I would not miss with and some simple computer mice to better present the predator.

"Keyboard Wall Graphics"
These Keyboard Wall Graphics by Zek are an way to redesign your interiors, especially if you are a geek and wanted to show your visitors how much you love working on the computer.

"Classic Mac Keyboard Skull T-Shirt"
Classic Mac Keyboard Skull T-Shirt comes with a great design printed on the bust and has been created by a U.K. based fashion designer to be cool and geeky at the same time.

"Chia Computer Keyboard"
If you thought computers could not be green ever, think for another second. Here is a cool keyboard that is not just green but is literally green! The Chia Computer Keyboard has got grass growing in it for a more eco-friendly environment.

"Pirate Computer Keyboard"
The Pirate Computer Keyboard is a bizarre gadget that has been designed for pirates only. Since one could assume that pirates can’t read, they can be taught to press ‘space’, the ‘enter’, the ‘shift’, etc. I am not sure which pirate would like to get a gadget like this, but at least it helps them write the “rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr” they are so famous of saying.

"Skateboard Computer Keyboard"
If you are a geek who secretly wanted to be a hunky Skateboarder, you could nurture your secret dreams by getting a Skateboard Computer Keyboard. There can’t be a better gift than this to a geek, but it probably won’t be as useful to really do tricks with.

"Geeky Computer Chair"
If you get tired after a long day’s work and would like to relax on a geeky chair, you could get yourself this Colorful Keyboard Chair which comes with numbers, colors and a smooth texture; just like a geek would appreciate.

"CTRL Button Lamps"

"QWERTY Rubik’s Cube"
For the messed up souls who really enjoy the Rubik’s Cube and want to show people how complex their life is, you could get yourself the QWERTY Rubik’s Cube. It just can’t be solved as there is no sequence in it.

"Keyboard Sneaker"
If you are the kind of person who wants to show off how geeky you are even in terms of clothes, go and get yourself a Keyboard Sneaker which looks pretty horrendous.

"Intriguing Keyboard Art"
The many who never believed computer keyboards could not be artsy, think again, for the Intriguing Keyboard Art has been designed by Jean Shin and has used Command Key Caps.

"Keyboard Plastics and Electronics Art"
Paul Chan is an artist at The Renaissance Society, the University of Chicago who has premiered a new ensemble of works titled My Laws Are My Whores. Deeply influenced by the great writer and philosopher Marquis de Sade, he has created a number of drawings, sculptures and some really interesting designs.

His plastic and electronics edition consists of a Computer Keyboard sculpture titled ‘Oh Why So Serious’, (courtesy Joker, Dark Knight) and is quite a sardonic and sarcastic take on the way the ideas of freedom, sex and pleasure are imposed on us. The ability to type easily and the laws of ergonomics used in a keyboard are an allegory to this systematic imposition of ideas concerning freedom and pleasure.

"Textile Keyboard"
Anyone who thought the largest keyboard came with a certain super computer, think again! This Textile Keyboard could just be the longest, and the most flexible too!

Any geek who would like to store all their geeky gadgets in a bag could certainly enjoy this Geeky Keyboards Fashion Bag. It looks really bright!
