‘The line’, a photo series by Spanish photographer Palíndromo Mészáros. The project chronicles the aftermath of the 2010 toxic waste spill in western Hungary - killing nine people and forcing the evacuation of thousands - through a compendium of images demonstrating the material staining areas of the village red.
The work does not focus so much on the people affected, but more the noxious byproduct scarring the town’s landscape. Without using any photo manipulation, it documents trees, homes and buildings blemished with a scarlet hue reaching up to two meters high.
Wood casted furniture, by Hilla Shamia.
Furniture combining cast aluminium and wood. The negative factor of burnt wood is transformed into aesthetic and emotional value by preservation of the natural form of the tree trunk, within explicit boundaries. The general, squared form intensifies the artificial feeling, and at the same time keeps the memory of the material.
