TINY MINING, A HANDBOOK FOR INTERNAL EXTRACTION, Aaron Parkhurst, Ines Tomasek και Agnieszka Anna Wołodźko, Martin Howse, v2.nl Marilena Pateraki
Tiny Mining [TM] is the first open source mineral exploration co-operative and resource specialist committed to the potential exploitation of the interior of the living human body for rare earth and other mineral resources in the interests of human and planetary health.
The wider Tiny Mining community was founded in November 2019, and the initiative is devoted to exploring the culture of self mining through sharing knowledge, advocacy, discussion, tutorials and collective sweatshops. This open community consists of a diverse group of chemists, geologists, artists and alternative medicine practitioners.
This first electronic publication collects expert and critical reflections engendered by the community, alongside documentary material from the inaugural Tiny Mining sweatshop conducted in November 2020, and background research or source materials commonly circulated within the wider Tiny Mining community. With insights from the history of close bodily contacts between human beings and the geological, the discipline of medical geology, medical anthropology, speculative bio-fictions, and new dark ecological theory.
