The Electronic Afterlife
FIlmmaker Alex Gorosh was commissioned by Gizmogul to make a video about electronic waste and where it ends up.
With ewaste from the western world making it’s way to developing countries where young men work around the clock burning our waste to earn a few dollars and in the process, are consuming toxic fumes, this video is a friendly reminder to consume well and recycle well.
I’ll have to admit, I love artwork that’s completed with everyday objects as I find it hilarious and interesting about what artists choose to use in their work. Haribaabu Naatesan, is an Indian artist who uses e-waste.
Hari questions used and even past by their due date electronics and the way we see them. Just because they’re old and no longer used doesn’t mean they should be forgotten is the philosophy behind his works is to create awareness of reusing e-waste.
With our fast turnover of electronics in our societies and limited resources to break down all the material, Hari’s work is inspiring.
