PREPARE TO BE SAFE INSTALLATION, 2022


“Prepare to be Safe”
Is a web campaign led by the Ontario Power Generation and the City of Durham.
Visiting the website anyone living in a 50km radius of nuclear facilities can receive a packet of Potassium Iodine pills to temporarily shield their thyroids in the event of a nuclear accident.

The packet contains 20 pills for a single human. Timescales are considered: Uranium's half-life is 4.5 billion years
So is the interdependence of humans on the more than humans and the unlivability of nuclear contamination.



Thinking about the ritual of risk management
reimaging protocols, social contracts, embodied scores for catastrophes
