Artist Statement:

    ORE focuses on the audio dimensions of contemporary mining techniques and rare earth mineral mining. The project stems from an interest in the global nature of mining for various reasons, ranging from a fascination with deep time (geological and evolutionary processes occur on profoundly different timescales than those we deal with in our daily lives) to the Anthropogenic Now. The concepts of controlling and re-shaping the Earth through mining have major environmental consequences which will be evident far into the Deep Future.
