EWASTE BY SENIOR DESIGN STUDENTS
Lobby, Leu Center for the Visual Arts / 1900 Belmont Blvd. August 19, 2019 - December 6, 2019
Electronic waste, often referred to as eWaste, is a global issue but is largely unknown to most people. It accounts for around 2% of all the waste in American landfills but represents 70% of all hazardous waste. In order to bring awareness this particular issue, the Belmont University design students were tasked with making public designs to be presented on a large electronic display created from 55 old or partially broken tablets to create one unified screen. The visual designs bring awareness to the problem and address potential solutions, while the installation itself also demonstrates how new life can be given to old technology.
Exhibition ends December 6, 2019.
