Liminal is a documentation of a site that is integral to our daily existence. The landfill site, and more specifically in this case construction & demolition waste landfill, is a key part of contemporary society yet one that we rarely think about as we go about our daily lives. Approaching the landfill site from an external perspective, Liminal begins by looking at the way that the site sits in its surrounding environment, until eventually we are introduced to an alien landscape that is often hidden from view.
Having stepped over the boundary, Liminal explores the inner reaches of this post-futuristic landscape; taking you to the quarry where the process of backfilling all begins; with sand being excavated from the earth, and then transported across the country for use in various construction industries. With close to 400 of these sites across Great Britain, over 25 million tonnes of sand was quarried in 2010 alone by an industry that directly employs around 9,000 people.
