The media are not toys… they can be entrusted only to new artists, because they are art forms.

Convergent Weathers *

How can erosive processes construct a spatial mapping of anthropogenic climate change?

Six Mile Island is situated at the convergence point of two intense site forces: volatile forces of wind and the flow and flooding of the Allegheny River. These weathers remove and deposit sediment, creating spatial conditions 

As the erosive properties of wind and water weather the different densities of layered material, striations within walls become revealed and landscape morphologies become a mapping of weathers.
