We’re in the process of making an exhibition at the TAC in Eindhoven addressing the ethics around the evolution of technology. The exhibition opens in March and will be centered around different design- and research projects illuminating this topic in different ways, and we’re looking at ways to make the exhibition design actively reflect these questions as well.
A possible option that we’re really excited about at the moment is a collaboration with a Precious Plastic team where we’d turn a large amount of discarded consumer electronics into shredded plastic pellets that we’d use as a material (laying in piles on the floor) in the exhibition. During the exhibition the audience would be able to pre-purchase a product that the plastic would be turned into afterwards, in order to ‘leave no trace’, in a way.
This is the (very) general idea so far, but if you live in the Netherlands and think this sounds interesting we’d love to get in touch with you so we can investigate the possibilities further. There’s a little budget available for your time, effort and expertise. We can also send you a full project proposal if you’d like to read a bit more about it. Looking forward to hearing from you!
Hope all is well!
