Currently there are more unused mobile phones per head of population in Australia. Research in sustainable practice continues to question the methods of reclaiming, reusing and recycling materials in a global economy based on built-in obsolescence.

In response to the proliferation of e-waste globally and in consideration of the processing of recyclates artists Nicky Hepburn, Liv Boyle and Belinda Newick will explore and repurpose materials of e-waste into jewellery and objects.
