Art from an old computer

Anna and I are working as volunteers at the Computer History Museum helping them to catalog and preserve artifacts in their collection. I have been taking pictures of some of the artifacts that I find interesting, and sometimes I spend time at home researching what I can find out about them.

Recently I have done a few experiments trying to turn these pictures into abstract art. The image above is one I did recently using Photoshop Elements. The original image is of the back of some old IBM equipment that contains a big tangle of wires.
