Our laptops, cell phones, and other gadgets derive from and return to the earth in a harmful cycle that requires urgent awareness and action to address humanity’s permanent impact on the planet. Earth Machines considers this relentless stream of new tech products, the materials they are made of, and their ecological influence. In this small group exhibition, each work of photography, sculpture, sound, or painting explores a different aspect of the rapid production of electronics and the resulting effects on the environment, from rare earth mining, to the disposal of e-waste and the long-term decomposition of tech products.
