Spaces for Witness : Designing for the Post-Extractive Archipelago Winters, Celia


This graduate project analyses the discarded and aging industrial infrastructure of conventional oil and gas wells embedded throughout the North American urban and rural landscapes. The intent of this research aims to explore how design can contribute to the expansion of spatial interventions and environmental justice in these critical landscapes through speculation and provocation. There are two fundamental goals of this design project: Raising awareness of the aging and abandoned oil and gas well infrastructure and their negative impacts. Creating interventions that could explore, provocate, and perhaps mitigate the ongoing adverse affects on the landscape and people.
