Technological evolution and obsolescence on Earth and in outer space, in a new project by artist Julia Christensen. This volume documents an ongoing investigation by artist Julia Christensen into how our relentless "upgrade culture" – the perceived notion that we need to constantly upgrade our electronics to remain relevant – fundamentally impacts our experience of time. In a personal narrative interspersed with related interdisciplinary artwork and conversations with experts from different fields (other artists, archivists, academics), Christensen takes readers along a path from the international "e-waste" industry to institutional archives, eventually leading her to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).
