In speculative digital landscape, metal objects, created previously by humans, form new structures and contaminate landscape. Metal is something that people take from a landscape as a result of thousand years of geological transformation. Reworking this material, civilisation creates another metal structures, which than again return to a landscape, contaminating it. After Anna Tsin, contamination can also create space for appearance of new species and new mixes. My research is about this metal circulation and how it influences small species like rats.
