Scarred Horizon

Eddy County, NM, USA

Decay marks an end and infinity.

To create a permanently protected and universally recognized nuclear storage facility for thousands of years, the project must achieve a delicate balance of fear and respect. A shift in amplitude by lifting the familiar ground plane up 1000 feet, occurs as the contemporary landscape of progress and commercialism (a sea of thousands of existing oil pumpjacks) builds and builds, nodding donkey upon rocking horse, decaying and bonding over millennia into an overwhelming landform of future relics, signifying a scarred wasteland and sacredly profane burial ground; purposefully intriguing, warning, and disinviting until, at the horizon, nothing.

A reliquary to our inevitable vulnerability to nature after our profit from it.
