Performance to camera - along a trickle of a stream that runs for only a mile from the Penwith moor to the Atlantic at Porthglaze Cove in the far west of Cornwall. This steam was previously the site of a violent and tragic flood when a freak storm came in off the sea (2008).
I reflect on this performance in the book chapter 'Geologic landscape: a performance and a mobile phone' (2019) in which I explore the accidental demise of my mobile phone. The text points to the geology and geopolitics of contemporary mining in West Cornwall, now reopening to exploit lithium deposits for use in the electronics industry.
