  • This series of three images is composed from a very peculiar drilling core, sourced from an enormous rubbish dump in Tripoli, Lebanon. A landfill bordering the sea and exposed to the elements, it has accumulated waste over a period of twenty-five years. This sedimentation has radically altered the local landscape, and today forms hills that rise forty-five meters above sea level; technofossils, resisting time, remain long after their surrounding landscapes disappear. The treatment of waste is at the center of questions regarding the inheritance of the planet, the Anthropocene, economic-environmental management and The Great Acceleration.
