Soils that surround ancient settlements can hold forensic evidence of past societies: their activities are revealed through the retrieval of soil 'thin-sections' and subsequent visual manipulation and analysis; the resulting data connotes both environmental change & human adaptation.

These two generative audiovisual installations explore the data from these scientific investigations. They explore a basis for conceptualizing new, or newly extreme locales, and offer a critique of sonification & visual representations across the art?science interface.
