Those buttons have become something else - jewelry? Or were they buttons? What are “buttons”...?

I have been collecting Portable Network Graphics (on free PNG online libraries). Those vast domains of PNGs demonstrate how our visual communication is constructed by single graphical assets. The assets are being uploaded, dowloaded, used, left and recycled by billions of unknown users. They are the recycle station and the factory for internet graphic.

I started making some collages by just piling up those png assets. I feels like a hobby for a garbage hoarder.
