A series of 3D printed sculptures examining the relationship between natural resources and advanced technology.

A series of 3D printed gypsum sculptures, the series Ghost Relics of the Atacama: NaCl Formations was 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.
