Artwork made of e-waste

Over 30 computers, a large amount of mobile phones, hard drives, graphic cards, CD players, monitors, old-school radios, webcams and MP3 players were sourced to make our Youtube mural come together.

The interactive artwork is a little intricate city that is comprised of discarded E-waste: hardware chips and elements- all parts that we need to view Youtube (and once were). The pieces used have passed through thousands of hands- from the people who originally designed them, fabricated them, and sent them down under – and have had plenty of use and spent hours streaming videos, whirring away before they ended up in our studio… and being dipped in paint.

Welcome to the city behind the screen.
