Perhaps the rarity of this image could some how be represented to create a visual argument that aligns with the caption. This is an interesting problem because, with the caption, the image is metonymic of a lack of other images... but visual representations of lack are conceptually tricky. So I'm not exactly sure how to go about that. You combine the image with a pithy statistic, or perhaps include some of the metadata of the image that signifies its rarity? Or perhaps you could include a lot of blank space around the image to indicate the absense? I don't know if i like any of these suggestions in particular, but I hope there is potential for play in and around them.
I wonder what would be accomplished if the contributor could replicate the patchwork/collage motif into the image itself. Part of what feels so compelling about the quilt is the way the quilter was able to tell a story through the quilt squares.
Could it be better quality? Could you make it clear it's google earth - label the buildings? Perhaps show the photo as being more connected to the map somehow?
Perhaps highlighting the specific interstices in the image? Editing with toxics in the interstices or something like that?
The image is rich with information and meaning. The caption could give more information about the place of the Ennore Creek - it's industrial history and its significance to the local people (such as the old woman), and about the interplay of different kinds of toxicity.
No. It's stunning, and in combination with the caption has a striking effect.
The quality of the image can be improved, and the font can be bigger.
I would also invite the author to complicate the visualization of temporality —how to complicate the linear representation of time?
Improving the quality of the image would help to make a stronger case around how scientific knowledge practices represent toxicity or toxic places.
Again, I can't. The image, in combination with the caption, very effectively communicates the relationships between bodies, resources, landscape, and toxics.
