Ari and I spend the afternoon poodlewalk exploring a local quarry and the area around the old Victor Harbor Council waste facility. I was interested in exploring the idea of liminal spaces or edgelands. Though the quarry area had little of interest the dump area offered up possibilities:
This is an edgeland between a small farm and the wasteland as the Council dump has moved on. The space on the edge of the town is where its rubbish was dumped and turned into landfill. The area is now a neglected space, and it offers a glimpse at ‘history as in the stratified layers of an archaeological site’, and maybe even of the future.
