Digital Upcycling

Darden (an instructor for BDW and project manager at mondo) brought up an interesting proposal about a week and a half ago. She wanted to do something with digital junk, but recycle it or modify it in a way that makes it more valuable to us than what it was before. She coined the term “Digital Upcycling”. She also gave us a week to produce something on the BDW Wall that would display the essence of what Digital Upcycling means.

After a couple days of brainstorming and tinkering, we were finally ready to put everything together. This timelapse captures part of the process:
