After centuries of mining, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find large concentrations of valuable minerals close to the surface of the earth. New technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), deep learning, and hyperspectral imagery can help us to identify deeper deposits with great accuracy. With spectral cameras, the exact location of for example metals can be detected. In this speculative video installation we see how natural resources have already been found, mined and used to create a new geode composed of the most valuable natural resources found on earth. Is this the end station of the Anthropocene?
