Dust to Dust
Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust explores the paradox
of creative destruction in Earth’s calamitous yet
regenerating geophysical processes - volcanism.
Based upon the Smithsonian Institution’s main
database of active volcanoes around the world, the
broad variety of geographic as well as visual repre-
sentations of this genuinely disastrous force are
explored in an ever-changing but repeating frame-
work of satellite data, topographic maps, 3D models and tabulations.
