Abstract

I am the founding member of the artist-led collective Environmental Resistance. This publication combines photographs of an abandoned copper mine ('Parys Mine' or 'Mynydd Parys') in Anglesey, and an eco-toxic river of leachate emerging from the same mine (the Afon Goch River), with mineral sample results taken from within the frame of the image at the time of making the photograph. The Mynydd Parys & Afon Goch publication represents an attempt to visualise the scientific process, using multimodal design techniques, in order to promote the need for environmental remediation of abandoned metal mine sites in the UK and beyond.
