‘This project is a continuing trace of finding, naming, visualising, mapping and sounding 122 shadow places of the tropical port place of Townsville, Australia. The research began in 2011. A once invisible and unknown network of material-capital interconnections, mineral mobilities and ecological interrelatedness is disclosed and described’ (Boscacci 2016).
