Power Plant

Power Plant is a project dedicated to nuclear and power structures, mechanisms, and infrastructures in regard to human activities within geological time - the concept of deep time. In this excerpt, you can reexamine the photographic series of interfaces taken at the decommissioned Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant (IAE) in Visaginas, Lithuania.

Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant is a decommissioned two-unit RBMK-1500 nuclear power station in Visaginas Municipality, Lithuania. It was built by the Soviet Union during the cold war period and now shut down and demolished by the European Union. In the proximity of 50 kilometers from IAE Belorussia built its own new nuclear reactor - The Belarusian Nuclear Power Plant - with great support from Russia. Not far from there is Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant which nuclear accident had paralyzed and heavily polluted the region in 1986.

The presented infrastructure of power within the nuclear industry: reactor, radioactive waste, nuclear emission, numerical coding, control panels, and interfaces. Most of these materials will be recycled or buried and major buildings demolished, a few buildings, we hope, might be kept and upcycled.
