Part Five | Extraction by Different Means

Part Five | Extraction by Different Means

In Part Five of the series Ecology After Nature: Industries, Communities, and Environmental Memory, Misho Antadze’s The Harvest (2019) and Ivar Veermäe’s The Flood (2018-2019) examine the process of cryptocurrency mining and the ecological implications of this new mode of energy consumption, where digital ways of extraction are shown to be as environmentally harmful and socially exploitative as the mining and excavation of natural resources.

Ecology After Nature: Industries, Communities, and Environmental Memory is an online series of film programs and discussions on e-flux Video & Film, programmed by Lukas Brasiskis.

The films in Part Five | Extraction by Different Means will screen for two weeks from Sunday, Sunday, October 11 through Saturday, October 24, 2020. Subsequent parts will follow bi-weekly, with new films screened every other Sunday.

Ivar Veermäe

’s work evolves similarly to the thread of a networked world while keeping a sharp eye on the functioning of an uncontrollable whole. His main interest lies in questions about public and private space, mediation processes, architecture and infrastructure, and information technology and networks—in their hidden or stealthy qualities and agenda.
