This two-sided newsprint poster was printed in conjunction with Julia Christensen's Burnouts exhibition at COR&P in March of 2014.
Burnouts is a series of five sculptural video projectors that beam images of retired constellations on the gallery ceiling. After tracking industrial trash from shuttered factories in Ohio across the globe to southern India, Christensen was inspired to investigate potential reuses of our discarded technology. The projectors on view are powered completely by decommissioned iPhones housed in slick, custom-built, rapid-prototyped cases. Christensen's juxtaposition of outdated and current technologies highlights the rapid cycle of technology consumption, and how quickly the new becomes the old.
The front of the poster contains schematics of the projector designed by Christensen. The reverse contains the entire 3D model of the projector in COLLADA format set in very small type.
Poster dimensions (unfolded): 22.5" x 28". Posters will be shipped folded twice.
