Moss River Memories (Post-Industrial Stones), 2017
In the near future the north side of the river in Moss, a previous industrial area, will be rapidly and radically transformed into an attractive apartment neighbourhood. This planned future has been received with ambivalence within the local community. The river edge will never be the same after the development. Documentation of present conditions has a variety of potential uses.
One form of documentation is collection of objects. Moss River Memories (Post-Industrial Stones) consists of photographs of a series of objects collected along Moss river resembling stones, perhaps so called Plastiglomerates, which appear to be remnants of industrial processes but give the impression of being results of natural processes. The objects are represented in scale 1:1 in the photographs. These residues are memories representing transformation from industrialisation to post-industrialisation and indications of the Anthropocene age. Simultaneously appearances of the past and openings into the future.
