An interesting way of looking at consumerism and landfills, layering clothing upon clothing and simulating a landscape that is eerily familiar. By Jarod Charzewski

The purchasing habits of the North American consumer requires the extraction on our planets resources only to replace them with processed goods in the form of discarded merchandise. This geological cross section shows the new and improved layers of the Earth. Through our ever expending and multiplying landfill sites these new layers will provide us with a planet rich in synthetic nutrients and chemically enhanced goodness.
