This event is scheduled in conjunction with the exhibition Discarded: The Afterlife of Everyday Electronics, in the Arcade.
Every year, electronics are mass-produced and consumed resulting in a great amount of discarded materials. For instance, in 2010, 2,440,000 tons of electronics were disposed of in the United States and only 27% of them were recycled. What happens to the rest of the electronics? How does electronic waste affect the environment? What are alternatives to disposing electronics? How can sustainability be practiced in art?
Panel Discussion. Panelists include: Sarah Commes of PCRR, Margaret Renas of the Delta Institute, and Crystal Hodges and Linsey Burritt of INDO. Moderator: John Wawrzaszek of Columbia College’s Sustainability Program
