    This isn’t just about overconsumption, as far as I can tell. We don’t know if all the stuff depicted is at the end of it’s life. The cellphones and circuit boards, yes, but the shipping containers and cable spools, I’m not si sure about.

    Compelling images, nonetheless. I suspect most people don’t realize how the goods they acquire get to them.
