Discarded Gadgets as Awareness Art

 - Nov 25, 2008
Statistics show that the average person in the United Kingdom will generate around 3.3 tons of electronic waste in their lifetime, including everything from outdated cellphones to burned out washing machines.

This sculpture entitled ‘Weee Man’ was created by British Royal Society of Arts using 3.3 tons of discarded electronic items.

The structure, which stands at the Eden Project in Cornwall, was created in an effort to encourage people to think about the serious threat they put on the ecosystem with the massive amounts of electric equipment they dispose of.
