In the compendium ‘Quadra Minerale’, science and art intersect through Rosell Meseguer’s attentive and reflective gaze. Appropriating the dictionary format, she offers a simplified reading of some of the elements of the periodic table and their derivatives. The volume thus takes the concept of traditional treatises as a way of learning to look at the practical applications of these substances. Technology, geology, biology, politics, economics, and art come together, drawing new associations that find commonality in everyday life. Deeply linked to the history and practice of “mineral colonialism”, it seeks to expand geopolitical readings on the subject and the problems derived from it.
