    Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust explores the paradox of creative destruction in Earth’s calamitous yet regenerating and rejuvenating geophysical processes – volcanism.

    Based upon the Smithsonian Institution’s main database of active volcanoes around the world, the broad variety of geographic as well as visual representations of this genuinely disastrous force are explored in an ever-changing but repeating framework of satellite data, topographic maps, 3D elevation models and tabulations.
    As a conceptual disruption and visual reference to contour lines, spreads with white ink on black paper – an alphabetical list of all active volcanoes at this time – break the layout on a regular basis.

    Tabular data: Global Volcanism Program (Smithsonian Institution)
    Satellite data: NASA Landsat Program

    Format: 329mm × 234mm
    Scope: 150 pages
    Paper: Metapher Rough (120g), Gmund Colors Matt (135g), Papyrus Rainbow Grey (270g)
    Linen: Peyer Duchesse Neonorange
    Made as Bachelor’s Thesis at the Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences.
