Excited to be leading the field trip [Im]material Nuclear Landscapes for TimeSpan, and speaking about my research at their two-day conference Practicing Deep Time.
The field trip is part of the Practicing Deep Time conference taking place at Timespan and in the surrounding environments of East Sutherland and Caithness on 23 + 24 March 2018. For more details and information on how to book please visit the Practicing Deep Time page.
In this field trip led by artist Sam Nightingale, we travel to Caithness – the furthest reaches of mainland Scotland – to ask how we might imagine deep time through the material and immaterial nuclear landscape? That is, through a deep time that stretches into the future as much as it finds its inheritance in the far reaches of the past. We will explore the ‘[Im]material Nuclear Landscape’; through a range of discursive activities that put into tension the concrete infrastructure that supports nuclear energy projects (and their decommissioning) and the seemingly invisible radiological traces that remain deep into the future.
