For this art book I explored the question of how to store radioactive materials long term and communicate the danger they pose to people living thousands of years in the future. I drew my imagery from proposed designs to signal the materials harmful nature and the text used comes from a federal laboratory and conveys the feelings that these possible solutions should instill. The last page of the book features an infinity mirror that seemingly goes on forever while also reflecting the viewers face back at them to indicate how our actions and choices today will have consequences that extend far beyond what we can begin to conceptualize.
