For NGV Triennial 2017, Amsterdam-based Studio Formafantasma presents Ore Streams, an ambitious investigation into the recycling of precious electronic waste offering an insight into how design can be an invaluable agent for change.

Ore Streams explores the complex processes related to sourcing and transforming metals. The work proposes a new future of ‘above ground mining’, heralding the end of mining as we know it and a new language for the design of electronics.
