Description

Vania Setti uses slabs of clay plus iPods and electronic components to make art. "Slabs are great because I can use iPods and their parts as stamps on wet clay to create exquisite textures. Or I can melt the parts onto bisqued slabs to create new colors, textures, and shapes - I feel like a child playing with fire, and it is sustainable". Concerned about the impact dead electronics have in the environment Vania Setti decided to give a better destination to dead iPods and parts. "I am using them as artistic elements in ceramic pieces".

Most of the work is related to music, her main interest now. Memorable LP or
CD covers and pictures of artists have served as sources of inspiration. Bob
Dylan, Bob Marley, Jimmi Hendrix, Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald, and John
Lennon are among her favorite musicians whose profiles were incorporated
into the work.

Experimenting with iPods parts and other materials, Setti fired the
stoneware slabs at temperatures as high as 2,300 Fahrenheit.

Setti wants to reveal the inner aspect of iPods that are hiding inside their
impenetrable cases. "iPods do not have souls, but people can create such an
intimate bond with them. Why not give their short life an extension and a
better tomb than the landfill?", asks Vania. For her, melting iPods onto
clay is more than cremating them for their ashes. "The idea is to bring them
back to life in a new form - just like the mythological Phoenix cycle", she
ponders.
