Do we communicate with or through minerals?
Minerals and rare earths are crucial materials for the communication of today and with their help our high-speed exchange glows in truly vibrant colors and luminescence. Yet, the devices seem so disconnected to the precious rocks and their origin of extraction.
This installation follows the traces of minerals processed into our digital age and digs for the the magic properties within rocks and the correlation of these energies to the brilliant tech devices that dominate our life.
