Check out Federico Uribe’s astonishing carpet made from disused computer parts

This is not the kind of carpet you want to sink your toes into, oh no, it’s a carpet made from computer parts and thousands of them. This is the work of Federico Uribe, a Columbian artist known for taking everyday objects and making them into art. From afar, it looks like a rare Arabian carpet with an array of colours, textures and patterns. But once you advance closer, you notice that his attention to detail is unbelievable, and engrosses you in the game of who can name the most computer parts (translation: who is the biggest geek).
