History/Industrial Floor

We have worked to develop a variety of materials which present history as a moving target rather than a romantic memory carved in stone. Our perception of history is defined by what we have before us, Andrew Carnegie for instance leaves a legacy of a college, museum and libraries, yet until we consider the slag byproducts of steel making, he seems to be well on his way to achieving his self stated goal of "making our earthly home a heaven."

The use and abuse of nature is a known legacy of industrial culture, but it is important to understand the powerful impact such practices have on the policies and culture of today.
