The programme constructs a montage of narratives meditating on the site, the nature of landfill, and its impact and implications. Rhythms echo the movement of the tides, sifting and juggling voices and comments, drawing attention to the shifting scales uncovered in the intertidal zone: from micro to macro, from local to global.
