The Art Of Recycling Electronics

If you’re reading our blog, you must have some interest in used IT gear. For those of you who also happen to enjoy modern art, this exhibit may strike some interest for you as well - Discarded: The Afterlife of Everyday Electronics.

Curated by Kirsten Kula, a recent photography graduate from Columbia College - the same school where I graduated - showcases the work of various artists with very cool pieces made from recycled/repurposed electronics. A series of Nintendo graphics hacks I did for my end of year graduation show happen to be part of the exhibit, where you can play from a comfy setting of a living room.

The exhibit runs through March 7th. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm, with the exception of Saturday March 8th, where it will be open from 9am to 5pm for the Electronic Recycle Drive.
