Over 7,000 photographs edited together create this experimental video that documents the global production of copper.

Raven's journey begins in the open-pit copper mines of eastern Nevada. From there, she follows the raw material all the way to China, where it is processed, refined, and ultimately made into electrical wire. The seemingly simple story of copper is complicated by the economics of globalization, natural resource conservation, and nationalism. China Town was begun while Raven was an artist-in-residence at the Center for Land Use Interpretation in Wendover, Utah, and was edited here at the Wexner Center in Art & Tech. A Q & A with the director follows the screening. (52 mins., video)
