Upcycling – Gabriel Dishaw

4 Jan

Gabriel Dishaw creates Nike Dunks out of computer junk. They may be uncomfortable and set off the metal detectors in airports but recycled typewriters and hard drives have never looked so desirable. And a Nike product has never carried such an ethical message. Dishaw’s work hints at our throwaway culture and asks ‘where do all our wires and circuit boards go?’
The lucky few get chosen by Dishaw and end up in a New York art gallery but the majority of discarded technology rests in pieces on a landfill site.
