This publication assembles some of the critical results of our study of the contaminated site, in the form of a series of artworks. Each work presents its own set of questions and challenges to constituting the act of cleaning up, the definition of the waste itself and the task before us. We offer these pre-studies to accompany the other expert testimony as we grapple with this waste, our reluctantly shared inheritance.
