Redundant Technology Initiative was set up in 1996 by James Wallbank. He started working with trash technology in the early 1990s in response to a digital arts scene hypnotised by the latest gadgets and the fact that, as an unknown artist, he was completely broke. Redundant Technology Initiative has exhibited across Europe, in venues as diverse as a cybersquat and an underground fortress, as well as in prestigious galleries like Tate Britain and Germany’s ZKM. As well as exhibiting, the group recycles hundreds of computers per year, and since 2000 run an open access digital media lab, Access Space, the UK’s first free media lab built from donated trash.
