Metals are the inner skeleton or infrastructure of human societies and technologies. Modern societies are profoundly metallic natures-cultures, and even our bodies are “walking, talking minerals” (Margulis & Sagan, in Bennett, 2010: 11). Human bodies are wired, internally and externally, technologically and physiologically, with ‘metallic lives’ (Bennett, 2010: 52-61), yet the dynamics of these intimate dependencies are comprehensively black-boxed, offshored, outsourced.
