This is a mixed media artwork exhibiting AMD microprocessors which represent the first twelve processors made by AMD (actually the 9300 is a logic chip is not a processor, but ti was AMD's first product). The artwork starts with the AMDs first logic chips and ends with the AMD K5. These were the formative years for AMD. AMD evolved from being a small second source foundry to Intels main competitor. Although it displayed thought leadership in some microprocessing areas, AMD was viewed as a me too company until it parted ways with Intel with the AMD K5.
The K stood for Kryptonite (against Intel). The background is a image of the AMD 2901 computer chip. Each of the chips are Intel and fully functional. Here is a list of the microprocessors used in this piece: AMD 9300, 9080, 2901, 8085, Z8002, 8088, 186, 286, 29030, 386, 486, and a K5.
These artworks are the creation of ChipScapesTM artist Steve Emery. ChipScapesTMare photographs taken of computer chips, boards, and other computer artifacts.
They are sort of chip landscapes, or ChipScapesTM for short. Most often a macro-lens or microscope is used with special lightning to achieve these unique artworks. Intel, IBM, Fairchild, DEC, Signetics, Intersil, AMD, Zilog, Motorola, MOS, NEC, Texas Instruments, are some of the great chip making companies. Chips like the Intel 4004, MOS 6502, Zilog Z80, AMD 2901, IBM PowerPC and others have changed the way people work and play.
Are dedicated to preserving and sharing these computing and communication technologies that changed the world. Works of Art are fine collectible artworks. Would make a great gift for the nerd, geek, engineer, programmer, IT executive, or just that technology savvy person in your life. Limited edition size of 50.
The artwork is framed in an 18"x22"x1.5 black shadow box frame, with glass. All framing materials are acid free.
