4TH BIN invites you to join us for a panel discussion, featuring our own Cory Kline, on the topics of smart sustainability and consumer electronics on August 16th at A/D/O in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. 4TH BIN will contribute our knowledge of, and perspective on, the electronic recycling industry.
The DISASSEMBLY Closing Panel Discussion will take place Thursday, 8/16, from 7:00 – 9:00 PM. This panel discussion will take place as part of ‘DISASSEMBLY’, a series of large-scale interactive installations which explores the untold story of the consumer electronics lifecycle, and the devastating environmental and labor conditions of offshore recycling. It will feature leaders from MIT, the EPA, and industry associations, alongside award-winning artists.
DISASSEMBLY : BROOKLYN is a participatory art installation that explores our obsession with technology and the untold story of the consumer electronics lifecycle, as well as the devastating environmental and labor conditions of offshore recycling. The artwork translates the global consumer electronic waste cycle into an immersive experience with a social conscience.
CTRL-X: A TOPOGRAPHY OF E-WASTE is a photo series and new book by Berlin-based photographer Kai Loffelbein. In his book, he follows the electronic-waste trails from Europe and the United States to the post-apocalyptic scenery of Agbogbloshie in Ghana, the e-waste city of Guiyu in China and the backyard workshops of New Delhi.
