XL features Guitartown

That small piece of artwork that I helped complete awhile back (and wrote about here) has been featured in the XL portion of the Austin American-Statesman.


Here's a link to the story and the photo gallery.


Here's the important part:

'Cybertar'

Where: Outside the Littlefield Building, 106 E. Sixth St.

S.C. Essai's sly 'Cybertar' communicates on multiple levels. Made from 'dead computer parts' Essai has collected over her years working in the tech industry, the geek-chic guitar represents Austin to the core. 'This is sort of a way to merge elements of Austin, merge the high-tech with the music,' she says. 'I'm one of not a whole lot of people whose art is made from spare computer parts. And the name I use is part of the art itself. SCSI is an abbreviation that stands for Small Computer Systems Interface.' Very clever. Essai painted the individual pieces and worked diligently to sculpt them into the (difficult, it turns out) contours of her fiberglass canvas.
