A Mineral Tarot for Invoking New Worlds

In the context of globalized capitalism, land serves as a framework for resource extraction and value accumulation, transforming natural elements into commodities. The green energy transition promises alternatives to burning fuel for power, yet many of the extractivist patterns in the fossil fuel industry are reproduced within the realm of green energy. Part cartomancy, part spatial association, part lateral thinking, “Lithium Laterals” is a tool for constructing counternarratives to challenge dominant trajectories of the energy transition. The deck's structure and interdisciplinary approach encourage diverse interpretations, aiming to stimulate alternative worldviews and pathways to more equitable futures.
