The nuclear fuel chain is a complex grouping of power dynamics that travel along a line of gnarled perceptibility, weaving in and out of lives, environments, and infrastructures at different points in time and space. The nuclear waste byproduct of this entangled nature has become its own site of controversy, financial gain, and history.

This project introduces complexities of the nuclear world's political ecologies through supply chain mapping. It looks at knowledge gaps and colonial power dynamics through the use of publicly available records and satellite imagery. Finally this project looks at the current nuclear waste landscape and proposes a reimagining of the above ground spent nuclear fuel cask as the material-semiotic apparatus for the memorialization of nuclear waste.
