Planetary Portals in Foam Magazine

Planetary Portals is in the latest issue of Foam Magazine—we're interrogating imperial archives to understand the flow of wealth & resources today, from gold & diamonds to data. We begin with the Cecil Rhodes Archive (held at the Bodleian Library, Oxford) during the Kimberley diamond rush (1871), South African gold rushes (1873-1886), and African expansion as a result of British, German, and Portuguese imperialism. This includes stills from the feature-length film I made in response, using the game engine software Unity, satellite data, and point cloud imagery.
