Issue 4: Copper

Find a penny, pick it up, all the day you’ll have good luck.

The fourth issue of Material Intelligence reflects on copper, a star-born element in high demand. We examine the material’s versatile qualities in contexts ranging from expert unionized electricians’ work and contemporary contraceptive to NASA’s LAGEOS satellite. With an introduction by Glenn Adamson and essays by Kawther Alsaffar, Barrie Cline, Edward S. Cooke, Jr., Christina L. De León, Carolyn Herrera-Perez, Jaime Lopez, Jennifer L. Roberts, Cornelius Skeahan, and Paul Vance.
