Cemex Ready-Mix Concrete Plant
Pier 92, Bayview–Hunters Point, San Francisco
Bayview-Hunters Point is a predominantly low-income neighbourhood and home to much of San Francisco’s African American population. It is also the city’s most polluted neighbourhood, with alarming rates of childhood asthma. For years, the Cemex concrete plant has been releasing fine particulate matter into the atmosphere, which causes respiratory and cardiovascular problems. Instead of bringing enforcement action, the district’s air quality board has allowed Cemex to continue operating under a draft permit in a perpetual deferral that traces the edges of legality.
Atlas of the Liminal traces transitional spaces, contested places, zones of exception, territories haunted by past innovation, frontiers lacerated by conflicting visions. Generated through algorithmic processes, machinic seeing unwraps three-dimensional image data onto the plane – obtaining perspectives alien to the human eye, and integrating the dimension of time where views overlap.
