Nothing to be afraid of


In my project, I thoroughly explore the issue of the seemingly invisible danger of Moscow airspace pollution by airborne radioactive waste, triggered by disturbance of hazardous burial site with South-Eastern Highway construction.

I rigorously build a comprehensive narrative with field photography, the reenactment of actual events, borrowed texts and visual elements.
This work is profoundly personal, myself being a lifetime Moskvoreche-Saburovo resident, the area nearby within a burial site.

For almost an entire year, I studied a subject visiting the site with ecology and physics scientists, activists, and locals, witnessed protests ensue, and participated in them.

Moreover, I was captivated with general public perception by a phenomenon of social perception of the problem, which I address in the project, capturing behavior and reaction of authorities and the city community to a potential threat.
