Conflict Free

Many of us New Media / VR types probably like to think of ourselves as progressive, as green, maybe we worry about our myriad electronic devices being “Designed by Apple in California,” but built in horrific human conditions at places like “Foxconn City.”

Brooke Smith, The Mac Guy, and the PC Guy remind us that even before they get to the dehumanizing factories of Asia, the Conflict Minerals in our phones, laptops, and everything else, are destroying lives in Africa.

As a Virtual Public Artist my work invites virtual communities to express their identity, explore their culture, and demand their civil rights.
