Subduction (The Eternal March of Poseidon's Mothership)

Graem Whyte

Poseidon the Earth-Shaker is still at it, slowly shifting the the Earth's plates to form new islands. Located in the Pacific Islands room of the former Natural History Museum, 'Subduction' seeks to illustrate on a basic level the forces that created the pacific islands: the slow, violent meeting of tectonic plates.
