"harvesting the rare earth" presents a speculative near-future scenario, where mining companies are using genetically modified micro organisms to harvest rare earth elements from e-waste dumps around the world.
the exhibition positions itself between a futuristic science demo and a dystopic illustration of the ecological consequences of our current necropolitical reality.
