The explorative work on the relationship between satellite imagery and extraction conducted in 2017 is collectively named as the study of Inverted Astronomy.
Inverted Astronomy is the study of the terrestrial surface from the extra-terrestrial prosthesis of satellites.
This work was a simultaneous enquiry into the unknown realms of machine experience and landscapes of extraction. It attempts to generate perspectives on our extra-terrestrial endeavours in the upper atmosphere and highlight's the space industry's dependence on terrestrial resources. The work highlights the anthropocenic tendencies of humanity by examining sites of mineral extraction across Earth.
Currently, the work manifests as a collection of dialogues, artefacts, installations, writings and landscapes, and this period of production is collated in the book A Study of Inverted Astronomy.
