Unrecognizable structures next to recognizable forms; satellite images that seem to take distance from what is real although they certainly express an unknown reality; images that seen from an perspective away from the specific knowledge seem to have only an aesthetic aim. However, what emerges is nothing but the spontaneous result of the accurate exploitation of a mineral.
Intense colours emerge from deep northern Chile and its hidden nature; geometric shapes that contrast with the organic morphology of the Atacama Salt Flat (immersed in the vastness of the driest desert in the world) and that are a true reflection of human intervention. Exploding bombs that cause chaos and electric cars that link lithium with friendly uses of the environment, are also some of the elements involved in this vision, allowing us to understand the message that makes the series meaningful and that begins with the following thought: “Chile has the largest lithium reserves in the world, how shall we use them?”
