RESEARCH: 2019-20 Artist-in-Residence
GOLEM is a new research and thought project whose aim is to reverse the alchemical process of refining precious metals from stone, and also reversing the mechanisms of extractive capitalism by re-infusing trace amounts of precious metals back into the landscape. Segall is researching with metallurgists, activists, bureaucratic agencies and legal bodies to outline a practical guide for Reverse Alchemy.
