Drowning Planet
ABSA Towers North

"Drowning Planet" is a compelling and thought-provoking exhibition by You Made This (YMT), an environmental art initiative that seeks to raise awareness about the pressing issue of electronic waste (eWaste) and its impact on climate change. Our planet is struggling to stay afloat amidst the growing tide of eWaste, and it's time for us all to take responsibility for the role we play in this crisis.


This timely exhibition showcases a collection of innovative artworks created from discarded electronics, reflecting on the devastating consequences of our ever-increasing consumerism.


By transforming eWaste into beautiful and captivating art, we aim to inspire and educate the public about the importance of adopting a circular economy - one that reduces waste and encourages the reuse, recycling, and repurposing of resources. eWaste has become a significant global issue, with an estimated 53.6 million metric tons generated in 2020 alone. This not only contributes to climate change through harmful greenhouse gas emissions, but also pollutes our air, water, and soil with toxic chemicals. The need for change is urgent, and we believe that art has the power to spark conversation and inspire action.


At "Drowning Planet," visitors are invited to engage with the artworks and reflect on their own consumption habits. We encourage you to share your experience on social media, using the hashtag #DrowningPlanet, to further raise awareness about the need for a more sustainable and responsible approach to electronics. By supporting You Made This and attending the "Drowning Planet" exhibition, you are not only appreciating art but also becoming a part of a vital movement that seeks to protect our environment and ensure a healthy, thriving planet for future generations. Together, we can create a wave of change and turn the tide against eWaste.
