We mine and refine rocks to make pixels glow. Using hacked PC monitors, satellite time-lapse, and found footage of electronics manufacture and recycling, this new video installation connects the flickering screen image with the cycles of extraction that make its appearance possible, asking how many pixels and how much screen time the planet can sustain.

Stephen Cornford is a media artist who works with digital electronics, critiquing the ideologies they embody and the constitutive role they play in our lives. His current research is concerned with the physical materiality of digital image hardware, the scarcity of metals that are now ubiquitous in cameras and screens and the toxicity of many of the processes by which they are extracted. The resulting work problematises the technological solutionism often proposed to resolve the environmental impacts of rampant media consumption.
Stephen is Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at Oxford Brookes University and currently Earth Art Fellow at the University of Bristol’s School of Earth Sciences. He has had solo exhibitions in Tokyo, Berlin, Brighton, Bergen, Ljubljana & London and his work has been included in group exhibitions at the ZKM Center for Art & Media, Karlsruhe; ICC, Tokyo; Haus der Electronische Kunst, Basel; Sigma Foundation, Venice and at Biennials in Coventry and Poznan.

SALTINGS is a pastoral-horror-soundscape project, founded by Irish-born composer Andrew Cooke. Working by himself or collaborating with others, Andrew draws on the unsettling literary influences of authors like M.R. James and W.G. Sebald to tentatively create audio-worlds of controlled darkness; hushed plateaux of eerie tranquility and black horizons full of whispering, half-dreamed creatures.

Bit Miners make righteous sounds from pocket money synthesisers.
