In the fall of 2012, two artists set out with a car-mounted video camera to seek out a particularly abject material-event. For twelve days, they travelled the routes used by the trucks transporting transuranic nuclear waste through Utah, New Mexico and Colorado. They stage a meeting and a mutual reframing of two geologic imaginations: the timescale of a human life and the timescale of radioactive material’s 24,000-year half-life. They make media from within this practice.
