Dust in Arlit

This project examines the complex relationships between the Air and Tenere Unesco Nature Reserve, the town of Arlit in Niger, its uranium mine, the city of Paris, and the Tricastin Nuclear Power Plant. These destinations, though discontinuous, are connected by industry, history, and economy. Through the lens of scientific research and data collection we can begin to understand the uneven experiences of these locales.
