TECHNOTOMIE Dissection of an iPhone

For the un-technologically minded like us here at Coolector HQ, the inside of an iPhone remains somewhat of a mystery. We know we love our smartphone but we know little about what is bubbling away under the surface. But now, courtesy of this excellent series of illustrations called TECHNOTOMIE from Italian designer, Lorenzo Bricola, we’ve a bit more of an understanding of the internal workings of an iPhone (though we’re a little suspicious of their legitimacy – pretty sure ours doesn’t have ribs).

This first class collection of illustrations by Bricola are conducted in a methodical dissection style and are presented in the same way as historical dissections to understand the human body are and we here at The Coolector love this highly unusual and eye-catching series from what is clearly a talented chap indeed.

This TECHNOTOMIE collection is a series of 25×20 cm etchings numbered and signed by the artist and each one has a soft-ground etching for the outline drawing, an aqua-tint etching for the black tonal effect and another aqua-tint etched plate for the coloured backgrounds and, we’re sure you’ll join us in agreeing, the end result looks fantastic. Check out a few more from Bricola’s collection below:

Dissections are, of course, grisly affairs for the most part but they’ve been given a whole new technological edge with this cracking collection of prints from Bricola and we’re mightily impressed with the way in which the first rate Italian graphic designer has presented his finished product.

Technology essentially rules our existence nowadays and personifying it in this way is something that is suitably unusual and striking to have really captured our imaginations at Coolector HQ and we definitely can’t wait to see what is up next for Bricola.
