You are the Artist Man/Woman!

Anybody who can take something prosaic like VHS machine guts and turn them into Art, deserves major kudos.

Would also make an interesting still life subject if you can take the guts out and put them on a table.

Anybody can do flowers or fruit but not too many people show the mysteries inside ordinary items in their home.

I don't know if I have the stomach to disembowel such a beast. I do love the metropolitan maze that can be found in machine guts though :)

Thanks for the kind word

So maybe the side view might not be a good as a top down view.

It does beg the question, what sort of goodies are found inside other devices found in the home?

Do dvd players have interesting guts?

I bet devices that have to do some sort of mechanical work like spin things have to have some sort of gearwork. Washing machines, DVD and VHS players would have interesting guts but Ipods or cellphones would not.

If you have access to good or rich neighborhoods, you would have more of a chance to find subjects to study.

I hope this picture is used in some digital art deviation, 'cause this is a really awesome picture and it should be more involved, lmao.

It is a garden gnome I saw during a trip to England. It is difficult to see but the gnome is a flasher :lmao:
