‘Homeless Shelter’ fabricated out of a truck load of dead CPUs and miscellaneous computer hardware by Bill Thomson and Ken Gerberick. Created as a temporary art installation on the theme of Recycling. The shelter was located outside the public entrance to the Science Centre building in Vancouver, BC Canada.
Many passing by ‘dumpster divers’ saw a potential monetary value in the discarded computer hardware and asked if they could take away pieces immediately; presumably to turn into cash. The short term economy is apparently about generating cash, as well as finding free shelter.
