Attempted E-Waste Gold Recovery and References

The video “Attempted E-Waste Gold Recovery and References” is documentation of literally that. While researching issues around e-waste recycling I discovered Youtube videos showing how to chemically isolate gold from scrap electronics. I began dissembling old computers or electronics I found in the building trash and saving anything metallic. While an artist in residence at JTHAR, I attempted to chemically extract gold from the e-waste using household chemical products. The final sample, of a small bead of melted Borox laced with an orange metallic substance, is shown with stop motion photography. The final results are not conclusive. The metal content, less than a gram, is likely gold but has not been tested.

In conjunction with NYC Parks, the pavilion has been installed at the north end of Meadow Lake in Flushing Meadows Corona Park and will be exhibited until summer 2020.
