Artist and inventor Amelia Marzec has created an ingenious community project, called “New American Sweatshop,” in which she is attempting to reduce our dependence on electronics produced in sweatshops by salvaging components from broken electronics to be used in new domestic electronics projects.

The New American Sweatshop is an immersive experience where participants re-purpose electronic waste to create communication devices for the future. Using local resources and temporary spaces, it engages the community in defining what manufacturing could look like in a post-industrial economy.
