Living in today’s disfigured environment, where nature is but a fragment of an ancient beauty and richness, means living in a global allegory, where humans are forced to dwell in a lunar landscape – a locus of rotting trash, made up of all our discarded technological gadgets, where everything is swiftly reduced to “kipple” and “gubble” (Philip K. Dick). To put an end to this strabismus, we need to fully investigate the new4.0 e-wastes and expose their ontological and circumstantial structure, which profoundly affects our concept of space (in terms of geopolitics) and of time (as for the durability of our sensations of wellness).
