archival inkjet prints, 2019 (work in progress)
A series of photographs of core and drill cuttings samples taken at Alberta Energy Regulator's Core Research Centre in Moh'kins'tsis / Calgary. Drill cuttings are comprised of broken bits of rock (or other material) removed from a drilled borehole and brought to the surface. Each sample represents the creation of an oil or gas well. Each sample selected is from a well now orphaned and adopted by caretakers through Orphan Well Adoption Agency. Photographs were sent to caretakers in mailed correspondence.
