This series reflects my continued fascination with massive modern machinery used to create food or sustain life, in this case, Itaipú - the largest operational hydroelectric plant in terms of power generation in the world. Nestled on the border of Brazil with Paraguay, Itaipú means "the sound of a stone" in Guarani, a native language and one of the official languages of Paraguay. Five miles wide and 65 stories high, Itaipú harnesses the flow of the Paraná River, with each of its 20 turbines exposed to 160 tons of water per second. Fifty million tons of earth were moved in order to shift the path of the seventh largest river in the world, displacing tens of thousands along the way. What you see is it's inner workings, a view that is traditionally exclusive to employees. Empty caverns and loud echoes resonated in this massive underground complex, contrasting sharply with the throngs of tourists on the surface. The empty spaces become a metaphor for those displaced. The images are surreal and exude a sense of alienation – how small and destructive we are in the face of our environment, and the massive (and at times frightening) power of what humankind has created.
