CHAIN REACTION

Chain Reaction: Circum-navigating the Hanford Nuclear Reservation examines the barren landscape surrounding the largest nuclear waste dump in the Western Hemisphere. Traveling the perimeter of the site I encounter numerous rest stops, abandoned settlements, and wildlife sancturies. The ironies that result from the juxtaposition of two very different landscapes- the recreational site and the Superfund site- become the focus of this series. (Chain Reaction was originally a two-person exhibition organized with multi-media artist Doug Gast- whose work also investigates the reservation.)
