It presents a series of legwork explorations of geographically disparate landscapes historically connected by copper. It maps sites of transformation along the production network and commodity chain, documenting the mutation and transformation of copper from raw material to capital; through ore, smelted commodity, stock market exchanged value, assembled material and waste. It discloses theuneven spatial conditions in which the material circulates by connecting the ecologies of resource exploitation in the Atacama Desert with the global centersof consumption and trade in Britain, and by making visible its return, hidden in manufactured goods, to the territories it originated from.
