We know it's fun to break stuff, but Santa sure isn't going to be as good to Michael Tompert next year. The San Francisco digital imaging and CGI artist destroyed a whole slew of brand-new Apple gadgets as a statement on "our relationship with fetish, fashion, freedom, and bondage."
Via cnet, Tompert was inspired "after seeing his two sons fight over a game on an iPod Touch he gave them for Christmas. Tired of their squabbling and wanting to make the point that the gadget was just that--a gadget--he grabbed the device and threw it to the ground. The screen broke, liquid oozed out, and the mangled device looked surprisingly cool."
Tompert's high resolution digital prints of the demolished goods are currently on display at the WhiteSpace Gallery in Palo Alto, California.
