Stretched Resources Ceramics

Size: Serving Platter
Made to order ︎ Request info


Stretched Resources is our latest collection that aims to convey the strain humanity has put on the world during the Anthropocene. The ores shown on this design have been carefully picked due to various scientific papers and journals noting them as being the most high in demand or running out quickly, hence why the plate seems to be stretching thin.

As part of this commentary on 21st century society, Mitchell trained a Neural Network with images from old geography textbooks. The algorithm, running on a supercomputer, could then illustrate new rock ores with guidance from reference photos. The end results are so convincing, it's hard to believe that these graphics weren't created directly by hand.
