CEDA is an Exeter based charity organisation working with disabled adults, children and young people offering a range of meaningful learning and social opportunities. This year’s entry for TRAIL focuses on the ‘throwaway’ culture we have adopted with regards to technology. We live in a world where when something technical breaks down or stops working it is often cheaper and easier to buy new and dispose of the broken. Disabled people at CEDA rely on technology to live more independent lives and this project called out to them to pass on their broken pieces of technology to create art and not just be thrown away.
The piece we created is by disabled artists supported by CEDA’s wonderful artist in residence Ros Hammond. The mountain of tech has been carefully constructed with a colourful and bright collection of flowers, leaves and mosaic to bring life to this otherwise dull black and grey collection of technological junk.
