Cathode Ray Tube devices discarded on the streets materialize a lack of everyday technology recycling practices. This work recycles the forlorn CRTs poetically, by enabling the public to reclaim and sow homeless devices.The work consists of image strips, printed on seeded, plantable paper. We invite viewers to tear off a strip of documentation (from Denmark, Singapore, London (UK), Vancouver and Montréal), wear it as a technological sustainability awareness ribbon, and eventually plant it as a symbolic, and material action with identifiable environmental impact.

curated artwork - mixed media installation. Seeded paper on canvas, mounted on plexiglass. Made in collaboration with Cindy Poremba, Concordia University, Montreal, Canada.
