The scenes in Another Country emerge from daily images of conflict and uprising. Discarded shoes, tarps and handmade signs that mark the post-industrial landscape become part roadside memorial and part doomsday prophecy. These temporary sculptures – set against the backdrop of environmental decline – evoke a cautionary tale of hazmat crews and oil soaked shorelines.
