Sarcophagus

 

An exhibition data-mapping the ways in which different ground types at Chornobyl’s Reactor 4 hold memory of the nuclear disaster.

Plotted as a bridal tapestry, the data measures radioactivity readings of raw earth at the Sarcophagus, against the readings from concrete laid before and after 1986.
