Formafantasma—Ore Streams, Visual Essay

By  |

EDITOR’S NOTE: The film Visual Essay tells the story of Ore Streams, tracing the movement of minerals through time and space—from planet formation and asteroids to the core and mantle of the earth, excavated from underground mines for millennia and now mined again from the surface of the Earth. As a visual essay, the film draws connections between the physical materiality and processing of natural resources and the abstract yet pervasive conditions of exploitation, colonialism, and consumerism. Ore Streams, by design duo Studio Formafantasma (Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin), is one of the four directly commissioned works featured in the XXII Triennale di Milano, Broken Nature.
