The Earth Is a Finite System While They Dream of Infinite Resources
Henry Lämsä

This project comes as an introspection of my own involuntary participation in mining and its influence and presence on the Anthropocene. Satellite images of mines are captured from Google Earth with images mined from Google’s image search related to the extraction of resources and their usage. Adding to this, by using 3D-animations based on different satellite images of Finnish mines, the void made by the extraction is visible by inverting the depth of the extraction and giving it color and mass. The void in the real without matter is now a non-void in digital space. The video is projected on a rusted and varnished metal sheet accompanied with a soundscape.
