Description

By some estimates, China produces more than 9 million mobile phones per day. India recently surpassed China, meaning that this incredible rate of production generates more than 10 billion mobile phones per year. Add chargers, watches, tablets, and computers, and a global problem looms. Our research asks “what will—and what can—happen to this technology over time?” It exhibits a range of possibilities for our electronic waste. We have created sculptures, prints, photographs, and experiments that encourage viewers to consider their relationship with technology and nature. Combining plant life and scientific experimentation with electronic waste, the artwork is a timely provocation that will leave viewers contemplating how we might change our ecological trajectory.
