These Broken Kindle Screens Can Be Beautiful But Are They Art?


Whether you think it’s art or not, 56 Broken Kindles by Sebastian Schmieg and Silvio Lorusso is just that. On one level, it’s a book of cool lookin’ pictures. You really can’t deny that a Kindle with a broken e-ink screen can generate some neat looking stuff. On another, it’s a really weird, extremely meta project that juxtaposes some of the pros and cons of high- and low-tech reading. What do you say, art or just pictures of broken stuff?
