Day 321: Void and Mass

Some humans hollow mountains to store nuclear waste, some hollow volanoes to channel celestial light, some build works that will "represent all the civilization to this point.” I've discovered a blog that attempts to draw connections between Micheal Heizer's City and the failed Yucca Mountain project. I'm not sure Heizer's work is as aligned (especially in intention) as the writer implies, but the topic of massive land use and land alteration in projects such as these is endlessly fascinating.
