This film follows the energy that is stored in material environments and investigates their ontological significance.
The proximity plays an important role for the comprehension of places of extraction and the transformation of this energy. A direct touch on the ground juxtapose to computer renderings of planned mining operations, speculations and phantasies over these resources to feed the concentrated force of capital. Razor-sharp high-rise buildings become the new crystals, and the corridor screens of CERN, where science attempts to trace matters drive, become a fictional venue. Crystal Blades is a visual journey and exploration of mineral formations and deposits and how their manifestations shape contemporary coexistence.
