        E-waste into Art with Robb Godshaw | KQED Art School

        Robb Godshaw makes artwork that is conceptual and, as he describes, “Uses technical means to move things that can’t be moved, or make visible things that aren’t normally visible.” During an artist residency at SF Recology, which houses San Francisco’s dump, Godshaw scavenged electronic waste, most of which was functional. He turned old televisions into microscopes and made a powerful rainbow generator, upcycling e-waste to create illuminated kinetic sculptures and installations. The residency allowed him to expand his use of materials and elevate discarded objects to explore the personal narratives attached to the things humans leave behind.
