photographic reflection on mass e-waste

by lara

Upon seeing posts on e-waste, I remembered this project I had heard of awhile ago by an artist named Chris Jordan- although it doesn’t delve very deep into the societal implications of e-waste, it is a nice photographic reflection on the sheer volume of materiality e-waste takes up.

lara,

thanks for finding and sharing this. chris jordan explores the material byproducts of mass consumerism in a very compelling visual way. i’ve found a few other photographers who are also documenting e-waste from a material point of view, although unlike jordan these others tend to integrate people into the photos, bringing a different type of social commentary in their works:
