Ghost Relics of the Atacama: NaCl Formations Available through Assembly Point 

3D printed gypsum, 2018, each from an Edition of 5

The interplay between natural resources and the advanced technology that relies on their extraction to exist, is interrogated in another series of documenting works, ‘Ghost Relics of the Atacama’: digital scans of the salt rock formations that carpet the desert, recreated in 3D-printed gypsum. These examples of organic material translated into synthetic objects have the feel of pixels made flesh and look like bleached white phantom fossils, physical embodiments of our desire to digitise the environment around us as though subconsciously preparing for a future post-human archaeology.
