Eldorado Flutuante

Our project, titled Eldorado Flutuante, examines how colonial histories and modern consumer appetites have fostered a neo-colonial history of material extraction in the Brazilian Amazon. Our project seeks to mitigate the deleterious attitude projected onto the jungle by reimagining the relationship between miner and mined. El Dorado Flutante acknowledges the economic incentives placed onto the artisanal miners in Amazonia and seeks to re-establish this correlation through fluid interventions in the Amazon.
