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.
