“I BELIEVE in the inability to really understand the position of the oppressed from the oppressor’s perspective. For me, science fiction is a way I could talk about the relationship between indigenous people and settlers by inverting the power dynamic. So I created a narrative of aliens coming to Earth to extract natural resources. Each edition contains a fictional alien government ‘report’ and two samples sealed in glass ampoules: a pure laboratory sample of one of the 17 rare earth elements and a sample of air I collected in the Canadian Arctic from the northernmost settlement on Earth.”
