The World After Us: Imaging Techno-Aesthetic Futures — MOWA | DTN at Saint Kate

Jan 17



By some estimates, China produces more than 9 million mobile phones per day. India recently surpassed China, meaning that this incredible rate of production generates more than 10 billion mobile phones per year. Add chargers, watches, tablets, laptops and desktops...this is a global problem. The World After Us: Imaging Techno-Aesthetic Futures asks “what will—and what can—happen to this technology over time?”

Artist and writer Nathaniel Stern exhibits a range of possibilities and potential for our electronic waste with sculptures, prints, photographs, and experiments that encourage viewers to consider their relationship with technology and nature. Combining plant life with electronic waste and scientific experimentation with artistic exploration, the multi-faceted installation includes a wall-hung jungle of computer detritus and plant life, fossilized and reconfigured phones and laptops, and imaginatively re-purposed electronics. The exhibition is a timely provocation that will leave viewers contemplating how we might change our ecological trajectory.
