‘Ghost Relics of the Atacama: NaCl Formations’ is a series of 3D printed gypsum sculptures that were developed using digital scans of salt crystal formations located along the perimeter of a Lithium mine in Chile’s Atacama Desert. They examine the interplay between natural resources and the advanced technology that relies on their extraction to exist.
