I like the way you Like is a three-channel installation exploring the variety of social and physical worlds connected by the supply chain of mobile phones. It traces the entanglement where the mining of conflict (blood) minerals, the state of technological industry and the everyday use of mobile phones coexist.

Channel 1 HDV 9 minutes 11 seconds Deep in the jungle, humanoid workers play out an endless cycle of conflict and struggle. When Cam the Minor Miner becomes ill from exposure to toxic minerals, they entrust a healer to find a cure. In the meantime a machete– wielding worker fights off a Hydra of serpent birds of paradise.

Funding for this project has been enabled through The Big Idea, generously supported by Eleanor Langford and Gertrude Contemporary Studio Programme.
