Lecture 5
Video: Manufactured Landscapes
Inspired by nature- theme
Landscapes
Starts off showing workers in a factory
When looking at China, looking at place where there is coal less
All the materials put together in factories and get sent back out in the world
Workers looking through garbage dump for metal pieces
A lot of recycled materials collected here are being shipped to China
50% of computers recycled to China- e-cycle/ e-waste
Can smell the burning of boards 5-10km, before getting there- taking out the valuable
pieces of computers
Photo of grandma sitting on porch with e-waste beside her
In one of the towns that were notorious for e- recycling, were smashing monitors, inside
the monitors were toxic with heavy metals- get into the water, water table is
contaminated, now have to ship water in
Amazed by how fast this worker was putting together the TSM1 breaker- different small
pieces involved
Even one of the worker that was being interviewed had to learn a prepared speech to
ensure that they are only talking about the positive things about the company
Chinese workers working on poor conditions
Then shows workers building a ship
Dictated by white man
Ship shows metaphor that connecting us to the sea
Allowed globalization to take place
Looking at ships in Bangladesh, at some point saw tank of gas delivered
Taking the ships apart- destroying them
Images of Chinese workers in the metal scrap yard
Oil tanks emptied by 12-14 yr old boys
Dangerous work, hardly see anyone over the age of 30 there
Image of thousands of cars manufactured
Old car tires in a dump yard
Lots of highways
Peak of oil- no matter what we do, cant get enough of oil
Because they are entering late in the game, no dont how long they will be able to sustain
Three Gorges Dam- largest dam, took 15 days to fill it
600km long, largest reservoirs created
Most engineers left because it took too long to complete
20-30 Yuan a day paid to workers
3 shifts per day- morning, mid-day, night
Project started Dec. 14, 1994, been 10 years, will take 17 years, finishing in 2009
830 000 according to consensus, but actually 1 100 000 people relocated because of the dam
Landscape that is intentional, in need for power, moving out 14 full size cities, to flattened
out the cities, those people living in the cities are being paid to take their cities apart
Manually breaking buildings apart
