Sand, Silt, Salt, Water | 2014
A series of simple physical models--of salt crystallisation, sand dispersal, sedimentation, and water flow--offer a technique for engaging with 'entropic' material, aesthetic, and social conditions in post-industrial sites. An associated paper, Sand, Silt, Salt, Water: Entropy as a Lens for Design in Postindustrial Landscapes (Landscape Research, 2017), explores how entropy is used as a lens for reading and designing with sites of previous industrial use. The paper suggests that viewing post-industrial sites through the lens of entropy raises productive design questions and that the indeterminacies of entropic processes are analogous to productive indeterminacies in the design process.
