Digital Film - Metal Print



About the Artwork

Digital Film's subject is an Intel Mobile Pentium chip; actually, there are three of them. These chips are created to be lightweight and the chips used in laptops and tablets. Most Pentiums destined for desktops and workstations are encased in a ceramic case with gold pins that allow it to be inserted into a socket on the computer's mainboard. They mount these mobile Pentiums on a lightweight plastic material that resembles 35mm photographic film. The chip, the blue rectangle, is mounted face down on the gold interconnect leads that connect the chip to the small rectangular pads around the edges of the package. These pads attach to the laptop's mainboard. These lightweight mobile packages are about ten times lighter than their desktop counterparts. These mobile Pentiums are manufactured in strips, again, much like 35mm film, and the plastic is cut up into the individual packages.

About the Print

Bring your artwork to life with the stylish lines and added depth of a metal print. Your image gets printed directly onto a sheet of 1/16" thick aluminum. The aluminum sheet is offset from the wall by a 3/4" thick wooden frame which is attached to the back. The high gloss of the aluminum sheet complements the rich colors of any image to produce stunning results.
