Components of Leadership - Intel 4004, IBM System/360, Pong, Gift, Award
About this Artwork
This artwork is a significant departure from my other artworks that focus on chips and their history. This one celebrates the qualities of leadership I feel are most important. I created this artwork to celebrate leadership. I have given this artwork as a personal leadership award to people I have worked with that really exemplified these qualities. I have seen leadership qualities broken down to as few as three and as many as twenty. For me, nine is the right number. I choose a chip to illustrate each quality. The chips used in this artwork are rare collectibles, including an Intel P4004, an IBM System/360 processor board, PowerPCs, a Motorola MC14500B ICU, a Soviet 8080, and a GI Pong Chip. The background image is from the Control Unit of an Intel 4004 microprocessor.
The artwork is a 16"x20" in a black shadow box frame, with glass. All framing materials are acid-free. A narrative about the artwork that includes the artist’s signature is placed on the back of the artwork.
Please note: The look of the artifacts in the artworks may vary, each piece is unique.
