Earthing Discharge #03, 2019
Marjolijn Dijkman

(Spodumene with lithium from Manono, DRC, electricity)
C-Print on paper
110 x 90 cm
Ed. 3

The series Earthing Discharge depicts items associated with technology and energy use, including lithium, coal, circuit boards, and personal devices. Both Earthing Discharge and the film Depth of Discharge are made with a high voltage electro-photography technique in which the artist uses a discharge plate made from a tin-coated sheet, the same material as used in touch screen devices. By making microscopic electric interactions visible, electricity becomes an actor in Dijkman’s recent works, adopting an almost animistic character.
