In which we try to understand sites of material extraction, by first confronting the scale of these massive operations. At this massive scale, it becomes challenging to know where the landscape end and the extraction sites begin. They exert pressure on their surroundings and respond and correspond to the materials they are meant to refine. In this exercise the conceptual limit of these sites is literalized into an actual border. By rendering these field conditions as objects, we can begin to break down these processes from almost scaleless scenes into discrete spatial configurations.
