Wastescape depicts the negative impact of electronics waste (e-waste) created by humans on the environment. It is a prophecy of the day when a multitude of man-made objects sent into Earth orbits became “space garbage”, they blanket the Earth’s atmosphere, cutting those living on this planet from everything else in the universe.
Scrap metal is the result of technological innovation which is difficult to eradicate. It is also a metaphor of how human exploit the Earth’s resources and left the waste piling up as garbage since the early days of civilisation. The artist would like to raise the awareness of the pollution problems of e-waste in several dimensions.
