There’s not much you can do to recover a hard drive that’s died on you, unless you want to revive it in the freezer for a little bit. Miguel Rivera, a systems administrator, took a pile of used drives, gutted some and turned them into beautiful sculptures.
â€œThe overall concept was to make something out of just hard drive parts and pieces,â€ says Rivera. â€œI wanted it to look solid and heavy so I leaned towards just using metal â€” no plastic or gluing things together.â€
His first sculpture was made out of a 3.5 harddrive into a car and from then he kept creating more and more items from hard drives. He’s second sculpture took 29 hard drives, but all in all it’s very amazing
