Relevant to our upcoming unit, check out this Machine Project event:
Come to Machine Project Saturday, October 22nd at 8pm for a lecture by Julia Christensen on her project, Upgrade Available, investigating why our relationships with technology are so complex, and how we deal with our electronics once they are obsolete.
Julia has traveled the globe tracking the physical movement of our electronic goods as they transition into e-waste, and examining the cultural implications of this untenable system. Christensen’s talk unravels the narrative of her international journeys and the resulting art works they’ve inspired, tying the global aggregate of e-waste back to our everyday lived experience with technology.
