Dead Tech Rises Again with The Mill London's Tech Graveyard Installation

Creative 269 Add to collection

Floppy disks, hard drive guts and terrifyingly old phones return for Halloween 2017

Dead Tech Rises Again with The Mill London's Tech Graveyard Installation

The Mill London has transformed it’s Windmill Street studio into a 'Tech Graveyard' for Halloween 2017. Building on the success of last year’s ‘Vintage Halloween Cinema’ theme and the legendary ‘Disused Hospital’ the effort gone into this year’s transformation have grown even greater.  

Playing on just how quickly technology has evolved over the past few decades, the team have repurposed and rescued ‘dead tech’ from local charity shops (in the form of old TV sets, vinyls, CDs, VHS tapes and more retro machines) into a full-scale window installation with the theme continuing throughout the building in various forms.  

From a fish tank filled with floppy disks, the insides of old hard drives and harrowingly old mobile phones, to a large skull collage piece, made of old VHS tape and cassettes, each area of the building has been draped and decorated with tech of times gone by, sitting eerily amongst the state of the art tech housed in The Mill. One of the front windows is also screening a glitchy edited montage of The Mill’s latest Animals & Creatures reel and the Anthem Reel

The look in reception is completed with a fully working PlayStation 1 for visitors to use whilst waiting (they’ll just have to ply the remote from the skeleton currently attempting to play on it!). Clients and staff can also treat themselves to jars of themed sweets and other treats including the Java Juice smoothie, Violet Virus cocktail, Circuit Board Cookies and other edible tech goodies.
