The Waste Stream

This project is a series of photographs created at industrial waste sites that have been repurposed for daily, non-industrial use by humans. Each photograph is created with a site-specific pinhole lens constructed using a piece of consumer waste I find at that particular location. The pinhole photography process results in diffraction and blurring of the scene which creates a permanent visual layer for the viewer to consider, and references the close relationship between land use and consumer waste.

An explanation of each site can be found in the Site Descriptions.
