BERLIN, GERMANY - AUGUST 08: A bust whose surface is completely covered in electronics junk stands next to a partially disassembled Apple iMac computer at the electronics repair shop owned by Muharrem Batman in Neukoelln disrict on August 8, 2013 in Berlin, Germany. Batman has created a wide variety of busts and even full body sculptures whose outer surfaces are nearly completely covered in electronics capacitors, resistors, bits of circuit boards, CPUs, wiring, keyboards and other scrap he has salvaged from old computers and other devices. Though he says the designs are his own, he admits his sister Ayse and colleague Judith Brun do the much of the actual work. 'I just don't have the patience for it, women can do something like that much better,' he says. He completed his first piece ten years ago, initially solely with the intent of decorating his store, though he has recently launched a website and hopes to have an exhibition.
