  • In order to protect the environment and any life around it from contamination, this waste must not be disturbed for at least 10,000 years. To solve this long-term problem, the US government brought together a group of anthropologists, linguists, cosmologists, philosophers, geologists, architects, futurists, astrophysicists, and others to determine how to label this place when filled and sealed in 2030 C.E. A few of their many considerations included how current languages may evolve as well as th…
  • The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant is the only underground repository for the disposal of radioactive waste in the US. More specifically, the plant only accepts waste that was generated by the federal government during weapons production. This waste generally consists of contaminated tools, clothing and protective gear, soil, etc. The site will be filled and sealed off in the year 2030 A.D. This drawing is a sample of the drawings for Last Vacation Before the End of the World, Part 2.

  • In a world where nuclear superpowers try to top each other with each new test, a world where the Cold War seems like it never ended and proxy wars continue to spring up around the world, what happens when the tests are over and a nuclear bomb is dropped on a city? Kelley A Meister wants you to think about the end of the world.* Where will you go when the bombs fall? What songs will you serenade it with? What will you bring with you when you leave your home? Who will go with you? As a companion t…
