Art with Silicon Wafers

These ChipScape artworks contain real silicon wafers. These are not copies or facsimiles; they are the real deal. Silicon wafers are where computer chips come from. Each silicon wafer contains 100s or even 1,000s of computer chips. I have organized my silicon wafer artworks into categories based on the type of computer chips are on it. The categories are transistors (each chip contains a single transistor), processors (it does arithmetic, compares, manipulates, etc.), memory (it stores/retrieves information), and communications (it allows things to send/receive information).
