For What It’s Worth è il progetto sull' Africa di Dillon Marsh | Collater.al 1

Gold is the fourth project taken from the photographic series “For What It’s Worth” by the South African artist Dillon Marsh who uses CGI technology. His work concerns a significant chapter in the history of South Africa: the extraction of natural resources such as copper, gold and diamonds and the effect that this has had on the ground over time.

The CGI technique allows Dillon to create a scale model of the total amount of gold extracted from each of the seven goldfields of the Witwatersrand Basin, geological formation responsible for almost half of the world’s gold reserves. The golden spheres are positioned right against the ground, the place from which the resource is extracted and produce in the viewer a truly impressive and suggestive effect.

Dillon leaves us many questions and food for thought with his work, on his website you can see all the chapters of his work.
