Ink Cartridges

Ink Cartridges. Epson. Used.

It’s really the printer that is obsolete, and may be featured here soon. Printers and their inks embody the concept of built-in-obsolescence. I had to change the ink cartridges the other day and it struck me how there is now three times the waste now that they’ve got them in individual colours, which is of course a feature selling point.

Ink Cartridges

Status: Discarded. I now realize I should fetch them out of the bin and bring to the recycling depot near me which will take such waste. Quickly before anything mucky gets on it. Although we have two worm composting bins, so they gleefully get most of the muck.

Alt-title: Untitled Objects No. 229 in Cyan, Black, Magenta and Yellow.

As usual Untitled Alt Titles were originally inspired by John’s blog and Richard’s posts at The Future is Papier Mache. “Joke” Alt-title format inspired by Ben‘s joke format at the end of his posts.

If you are more romantic about ink, Day 164’s Inkwell  should hit the spot.
