4THBIN is proud to announce our sponsorship of Brooklyn-based artist Wiena Lin and her installation, DISASSEMBLY.

Please join us for the DISASSEMBLY Opening Party, Thursday, 7/19 from 6:30 – 9:00 PM. Enjoy an open bar while it lasts and tunes by DJ Mapquest aka Daniel Perlin.

‘DISASSEMBLY’ is 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. The third site-specific instance will be on exhibit at A/D/O in Greenpoint from 7/16 – 8/17.

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.
