World Docs #1
Natural Resources form the very basis of our materials economy. Their occurence, mining, trade and depletion have great environmental and geopolitical implications.
World Docs #1 collects publicly available data about these implications from various online data resources, including the cia factbook, usgs, wikipedia, and nationmaster.com, and transforms these into a data narrative. This approach results in a boardgame inspired collection of tangible assets - maps, diagrams and information cards - that foster an informed, associative and openended discourse.
