Sky Mining / Organic Alchemy

Sky Mining (Organic Alchemy) describes
a system of profiting from pollution,
created by small groups of bio-prospectors
outside of usual large scale bio remediation
operations.

Synthesized Clouds collect precious metal
particles from layers of smog above urban
areas. The result is a new organic growth,
which is cultivated after the clouds have
dispersed, and provides a sought after and
valuable material.

The project is presented in the form of a
lecture, given by the Centre for Microscopic
Airborne Events (CMAE) who have been
studying the techniques used, and have
simulated the cloud forms.
Clouds become infrastructure, providing
a seemingly unpredictable and potentially
dangerous form of aerial agriculture.
