Sustainable Sunday: From iPhone Scraps to DIY Projectors

This week's Sustainable Sunday presents multi-displinary artist, Julia Christensen's technology project -- BurnoutsThe project consists of a series of five sculptural video projectors made from old iPhones, discarded parts of old projectors, and 3D-printed outer casings.

Light from the unused iPhones is directed through lens and mirrors from old projectors, and an animation is then projected onto the ceiling. 

Burnouts debuted at the Center for Ongoing Research & Projects in Columbus, Ohio in March 2014. Julia's aim with this project was to convey e-waste and promote more sustainable practices.
