Temporary Index at HUMlab Umeå


This week we've been working at the fabulous HUMlab in Umeå, Sweden developing a new art work called A temporary index

A temporary index
is a system of decorative counters that mark significant sites of nuclear waste on our planet.  These are all sites that require provisions that must last from a few decades to hundreds of thousands of years and our system will attempt to count these time periods for each identified site creating a map of human influence concerning deep time.

A prototype was exhibited in Sapporo, Japan last year at Oyoyo project space, but we have been constructing a database here at HUMlab that will allow us to map a host of repositories, accident sites and entombed research reactors from all over the world.  A version of this work will be part of a touring exhibition next year curated by Ele Carpenter initially for the Bildmuseet also in Umeå.
