Giant mechanical shredders pulverize piles of discarded computer components, writhing as they tumble to their disintegration as e-debris, spit onto conveyor belts to be taken elsewhere. Large-scale projections through translucent sculptural scrims (and onto the walls and floor) turn the space into a twenty-two foot square walkthrough kaleidoscope. An immersive techno-industrial spectacle that underscores an epidemic of environmental disengagement.
