ORE STREAMS

Specialists on WonderGlass’ team created these works of art for the installation by Formafantasma for Giustini / Stagetti Gallery during Melbourne’s inaugural NGV Triennial.

Stripped of their original functions, the shells of the computers, phones, and microwaves are incorporated into the office objects, purely as what they are now — just materials. The contrast between the recycled metals that don’t bear any trace of their origin and the empty shell of e-waste is stark. The furniture’s design implies that the concept of waste should be abandoned: materials should never be thought of as waste, but rather as being constantly transformed.
