There are growing options for recycling, up cycling, and reuse for artists working with electronic parts these days. The global proliferation of powerful computer hardware means that even older, discarded platforms can be quite powerful. Personally, I’ve been working with recycled components and materials for a new body of work. A supplier I am working with claims to reimport some assets from dumps in Africa. Most of the hardware, however, is obtained from public auctions. I’ve also been experimenting with recycling cases.
