Toxicity Distributed / Driving The Human Festival

Toxicity Distributed explores future economies through a new array of green new deal transition jobs that deal with mining environmental liabilities. The project identifies the significant mining waste and residues in the Coquimbo region (Chile) at three different sites: a tailings dam, a eucalyptus plantation, and the future site of a desalination plant. Each of these sites, a current source of environmental conflict between local communities and the mine since the early 2000s

Exhibited from 15-17th of October 2021 at Radialsystem, Berlin Germany. One of the 21 selected projects by Driving the Human, an initiative led by – acatech – National Academy of Science and Engineering, Forecast, the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design and ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe.
