Just as the act of taking a photograph effectively destroys that moment in time, preventing the memory of it to live on and morph organically, the physical evidence of human beings’ influence on our surroundings plants a flag and claims that space, perhaps in our arrogance or our resolve. Monuments condemn the space they inhabit to the past, relics and messages attempt to reactivate a subjective present, and our impact on the environment increasingly inhibits a sustainable future.
