The exhibition captures the urgent problem of electronic waste (e-waste) in a rapidly globalising world. By exposing the destination routes of old electronics in a series of photographs of present-day Hong Kong it reveals the complexities in processing e-waste and questions what solutions can be used in response.
The exhibition is also hosting a screening of E-LIFE, a new documentary by Ed Scott-Clarke that explores the effects of e-waste on the environment, the economy and the people involved in handling our discarded tech. E-LIFE takes us on the global journey of electronics from their manufacture to disposal and their illegal transport to toxic scrapyards around the world.
This exhibition is part of Pow Pow Power: A month of exhibitions and events exploring pressing environmental issues and personal engagement. Pow Pow Power is hosted at V3 - an art-focused project space in Waterloo.
