Michael Tompert x Paul Fairchild   Destroyed Apple Products

Caveat: If you are an Apple evangelist, the following images may result in tiny heart aneurysm and paranoia about the safekeeping of your beloved gadgets. Proceed with caution.

The project really budded when Michael Tompert’s two children fought incessantly over a game on an iPod Touch. In the heat of anger and frustration, he smashed the iPod Touch, and liquid poured out of the broken screen. Tompert then, instead of grabbing a Bounty, grabbed his camera and shot it. His wife, upon seeing the result, suggested he should do something with it. And hence, Tompert and his friend, Paul Fairchild, started purchasing Apple products and sentencing them to creative deaths. Don’t think the destruction is caused simply by hand– the duo employed a handgun to blow holes into various iPhones, and for some of the iPods, he actually placed them on a train track so locomotives can run across them and send them to gadget heaven, where the floppy discs probably reside in happiness now.

Now, whoever thinks “destroy to create” is nothing but insane rambling, think again. via: DB

Whatever one person does that another person admires can be called art. Ni matter how stupid and pointless it is. This is about as stupid as anything I have seen. If I did this to a Windows product, the Micro$oft fanboys would be screaming in horror.
