“The book you hold in your hands was born out of two decades of research by Jeannette Unite into the industrial landscape of South Africa – historic, scientific, material and, most importantly, artistic. The art Unite produced from these explorations is inextricable from the impact mining wrought on South African history. We would live in a vastly different country – and indeed a different world – were it not  for the epochal discovery of diamonds, gold and other mineral deposits in the second half of the nineteenth century and the concomitant and sometimes tragic effects of these discoveries.” –Excerpt from the monograph, TERRA, 2012
