Updated: Feb 16, 2022
Remember the good ole days playing on your Gameboy Color? Or the days where you'd text your friends on physical cell phone keyboards on devices like the Sidekick and Blackberry?
Well, this company is bringing back your childhood in the form of art.
Grid Studio designs and creates artwork utilizing retro technology with such devices from your youth.
They use different devices like Game Boys, iPhones, Galaxies, and more. Some of their most impressive pieces are their iPhone displays which contain internal parts like the CPU, camera, SIM card tray, and more.
Some artwork even contains notable quotes by Steve Jobs throughout his life and career. With their iPhone 4S grid, they use a snippet from a famous speech Job's gave to Standford's graduating class of 2005.
"You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trus that the dots will somehow connect in your future."
The scarcity of certain retro-tech products like the original iPhone makes the artwork even more valuable, especially for Apple enthusiasts who collect memorabilia from the early days of the innovative company. The artist's passion at Grid Studio comes through in each work of art.
As stated on Grid Studio's website:
"We select the precious collection of marvellous article, unfold and restore in a collage frame, turn them into a tale of smart phone generation with value of art, the best choice for your collection permanently."
