Parisian Artist Turns Old Apple Products Into Plants

Parisian artist Christophe Guinet has salvaged a ton of old Apple products that have been thrown away and turned them into works of art.

The series, called “Plant Your Mac!” sees the Macintosh Classic, iMac 63, G5 and more outfitted with lush greenery. Check out more of his work here.
