The world's First E-Waste Art Installation Focuses on Right to Repair

Multimedia artist and activist Benjamin Von Wong is back with another incredible project to confront an environmental disaster. Earlier this year, Von Wong artfully exposed bitcoin’s negative impact on climate change, and now the artist is turning his creative energy toward electronic waste. Partnering with Arcadia Earth’s Toronto exhibit, Von Wong and a talented team, worked to create an art installation that will “make the boring topic of ‘Right to Repair’ a little more unforgettable,” the artist explains in a new blog post. Benjamin Von Wong succeeded there because the massive, interactive installation created using 5,000 pounds of e-waste is eye-catching and impossible to ignore. Von Wong and many essential volunteers, all of whom are listed on Von Wong’s website, sorted through 1,500 pounds of cables, 800 pounds of motherboards, 800 pounds of keyboards, 1,500 pounds of computers, and 800 pounds of household appliances they received from Uni-Recycle, an organization with locations worldwide that will recycle a person’s outdated electronics for free. Once sorted, the team broke pieces apart and constructed a design that could be pre-assembled, disassembled, transported, and re-installed on-site. David Lister from CNCcutting.ca and Von Wong’s friend and fabricator Dian Carlo played a vital role. https://petapixel.com/2023/11/20/the-worlds-first-e-waste-art-installation-focuses-on-right-to-repair/
