Media Artist

Planned Obsolescence is a policy of planning or designing a product with an artificially limited useful life, so that it becomes obsolete (i.e., unfashionable, or no longer functional) after a certain period of time. The work seeks to bring attention to the practice of planned obsolescence by reclaiming discarded circuits and repurposing them into unplanned forms of newness.  The exhibition was an outcome from collective study into materiality of media practices and its socio-ecological implications. The course - Archeology of Media Infrastructures - was taught at Aalto MediaLab by media artist Samir Bhowmik.
