…the moment Wall Street crashed into the woods, its train having pushed as far as it could go off the rails it thought it had built. The photo is from my series of Haida Gwaii nature-culture collaborations, where the detritus of industrial civilization, having reached as far as it could — in this case, the Queen Charlotte Islands off the northern coast of British Columbia and a little south of the Alaska Panhandle — is taken over by the processes that take over such things. The (human) ends being swallowed by the (ceaselessly churning and swallowing) means. What civilization was this?, Werner Herzog (or Robert Smithson) will one day wonder…

These decomposing wrecks are all over the woods of Graham Island.
