Workshop Statement

Audience: Zayed University Students, Level: Foundation

This workshop aims to force us to recognize our relationship with the objects with which we choose to surround ourselves, specifically machines and mechanisms we employ in our daily lives. Realizing our obsessive and addictive consumption of technology and exploiting electronic waste as a platform to re-invent. Explore ways of understanding the life-cycle of daily electronic/mechanic objects resulting in an A2 poster to illustrate it. Participants are asked to bring one every-day device, which has become obsolete in their home.
