Rubbish Art

In an age where we’re all encouraged to recycle more you may be surprised to learn that less than 15% of electronic waste is being recycled. To highlight this photographer Von Wong has teamed up with Dell and turned 2 tonnes of computers, laptops, keyboards and cables into works of art.

It is a scary statistic, but less than 15% of electronic waste is currently being recycled.
To raise public awareness about the problem of e-waste, photographer Von Wong imagined an amazing project, recycling 2 tonnes of computer waste into brilliant works of art.
With his team and the help of 50 volunteers, he transformed a mountain of computers, keyboards, electrical boards, and cables into a series of futuristic and fantastic landscapes inspired by science fiction.

The impressive project which has been created in partnership with computer company Dell – who run the largest recycling program in the world, offering free recycling of electronic waste in more than 80 countries around the world.
