Eve Andree Laramee, Fluid Geographies

“Fluid Geographies” is an art work currently in progress that investigates the environmental legacy of research and development of atomic weapons in Northern New Mexico. Los Alamos National Laboratories, the “birthplace” of the atomic bomb, is situated atop Pajarito Plateau, nineteen miles Northwest from Santa Fe. The lab property is divided by several canyons or arroyo that remain dry most of the year. During the Manhattan Project and the following Cold War years, more than 17,500,000 cubic feet of radioactive and other toxic wastes were buried in unlined-pits surrounding the labs, in cardboard boxes, plastic containers and steel drums.
