Have you ever wondered why there are no organ donor programs for dead laptops?  In this interactive installation, members of the public were invited to join sustainability provocateur Leyla Acaroglu and her team of dead stuff dissections in a live autopsy of computer paraphernalia generated by National Gallery of Victoria,  in a critical dissection of modern consumerism that also explored what lies hidden within the everyday things that fill our lives. What do you do with your e-waste?
