Digital Trash

September 5 – December 7, 2018

 

Digital Trash raises questions about what counts as “trash” and how digital technology is impacting the environment. The artworks in this exhibition force the audience to confront the environmental ramifications of our gadgets. It is also a call to action: How can we create more sustainable digital practices?
