Massifs is a series of images made in response to the disposal of 80,000 tonnes of mud in an underwater sandbank known as Cardiff Grounds, which is located approximately 1.8 miles from the Cardiff coastline. Discussions around the safety of the mud and plans to dispose of another 800,000 tonnes are currently ongoing between the energy company EDF, the UK government, and Natural Resources Wales. This project asks questions about the effect on local communities, as well as the environmental impact, of dumping potentially harmful contaminated mud very close to a city. It also touches on the mutually beneficial exchanges between governments and corporate entities, as well as the citizens and wildlife affected by their actions.
