Repurposed Computer Fins & Porcupine Quills

Repurposed Computer Fins & Porcupine Quills


The background of these slender porcupine quills, are copper fins, sourced from a computer heat sink. The heat sinks are thrown into a fire to release the solder bond, creating the unique patina.

The role of a heat sink is to redistribute heat to allow the computer to run multiple programs at once more effectively.

Porcupines are kind, gentle herbivores. When they feel threatened, they throw up their quills to defend themselves.

May these heat sink fins, allow your heat to be redistricted when you are running too many programs at once, & the quills remind you to throw up your guard, when you need to retreat.
