Earth is Room Enough
Caroline Mc Nally's work, Earth is Room Enough, addresses issues of consumerism and waste in contemporary society. This series is based around the site of the landfill, a site integral but background to our daily existence. These odd landscapes, with tens of feet of rubbish hidden from view, act as a metaphor for how our society seeks to bury and avoid addressing the deeper costs of the way we live. The artist is particularly concerned about the 'stuff' we continually consume, waste and bin on a daily basis without thought to the innumerable and immensely destructive repercussions these actions have at both ends of the production-disposal stream. As a society we are either unaware, disinterested or in denial of the environmental consequences of our actions.
