down the road

Every year, hundreds of square kilometers of land are sealed for road construction worldwide. The project „Down the Road“ asks what effects this impermeability has on the soil flora. In addition to reducing rainwater infiltration, roads flush tons of microplastics from vehicle tire wear into the ground every year. At the same time, constant traffic means noise pollution that not only has an impact above ground. 
From a collection of factors whose effects have not yet been researched, a video installation has been created that graphically and acoustically reflects the issues.
