Commissioned by Alejandro Ball and Art-Gene for online exhibition, August - September 2018.

Spruce Pine, North Carolina is home to a silicon mine that supplies fine grade silica for use in the semi-conductor manufacturing industry. The minerals extracted from this site are processed into silicon chips in mobile phones and computers around the world. Working from satellite elevation data and drone footage of the area, a fixed view of a Silicon Mine is created using procedural modelling and visual effects techniques. Insects, traffic and distant mining machinery can be heard in the audio loop recorded on site.

With kind thanks to Tony Lee Glenn for audio recording and drone footage.
