For What It’s Worth: Artworks by Dillon Marsh

Published May 7, 2020

South African artist Dillon Marsh combines photography and digitally generated elements to create impressive visualizations of the amount of precious metals extracted from mines in several South African regions.

“Whether they are active or long dormant, mines speak of a combination of sacrifice and gain. Their features are crude, unsightly scars on the landscape – unlikely feats of hard labour and specialised engineering, constructed to extract value from the earth but also exacting a price.

The CGI objects represent a scale model of the materials removed from each mine, a solid mass occupying a scene showing the ground from which it was extracted. By doing so, the intention is to create a kind of visualisation of the merits and shortfalls of mining in South Africa, an industry that has shaped the history and economy of the country so radically.”

— Dillon Marsh
