Mineralia
Conflicts & Negotiations Project
2014-15 MA cohort




Mineralia is an audio accompaniment to the Natural History Museum’s mineral collection. Using the intimacy of a textured acoustic experience Mineralia gives space to the histories and politics of display, specific to the Museum, which have somehow escaped representation. Embalmed in glass cabinets—for the purpose of illumination—they are consecrated to realm of the museological, made to act as testimony to discovery and enlightenment. Mineralia is an attempt at considering these spaces of silence, and to excavate and preserve the histories and stories that cannot be heard in the Mineral Gallery. Together the audio tracks endeavour to summon stories untold, present unfamiliar histories and create an alternative space of listening.
