120bpm does more than move the dance floor; this repetition, this constant meditation on these subjects asks for one thing: we want the Sun back.
Introduction

[RARE EARTH SCULPTUTRES] - Neodymium

During the later part of the 18th Century amidst the Industrial Revolution, developments in the coal and iron industries ended thousands of years worship of the sun. At this time Modern Capitalism began its two hundred year insurrection against the creator of all life on earth. When the coal and iron industries diminished during 1900’s the earth’s rebellion against its creator was far from over. New industries in crude oil and rare metals arose to continue the perpetual drilling, digging and unearthing of the rebel energy sources.

The Small Maitreya Solar Cross is both a sacred and ancient symbol of adornment to the sun’s immense power and to bespoke, high-end products of consumer culture which point their middle finger at the sky. At its retail price of £682.50 it is a shrine to the precious metals that lay within the earth’s crust. The bearded dragon which sits next to the Solar Cross presents another paradox. She basks underneath a neodymium lamp in captivity whilst her wild relatives are threatened in their natural habitat due to global warming.

120bpm does more than move the dance floor; this repetition, this constant meditation on these subjects asks for one thing: we want the Sun back.
