benjamin von wong resurrects 4,100 pounds of e waste for recycled photoshoot

‘how many lives do our electronics have?’ asks benjamin von wong, throwing a dead laptop onto a pile of others. his three-scene-evolution of tech are made entirely of discarded, forgotten components. circuit boards. keyboards. laptops. e waste.

benjamin von wong and his team remind us that less than 15% of e waste is recycled. the rest end up in landfills thanks to us users. only we have the power to reverse this trend, which is why von wong made sure to feature a human component in the photographs. the empowered human subject, curled between a sea of keyboards and standing at the center of circuit-board arches could be any one of us. like gods, we could choose to give these powerful components new life, or, we could choose to forget they ever existed.
