Commercialism and the pursuit of wealth builds a sometimes fragile and temporary landscape, which is depicted here as old newspapers shaped into throw-away mountains. Amassing wealth through short-term gains often creates a legacy of environmental disasters and forgotten people. The activities of humans, chronicled by newspapers in my imaginary landscape, are only blips in the geologic time scale.
