Artist's Description

The Malakoff Diggins area in Yuba County is often a moonscape of toxic horrors. This is the biggest and most visible eco-disaster in the park: a man-made pond created by digging into hillsides with high-powered streams of water, actual ‘water cannon’ that eroded away entire mountains in minutes and made it possible to search for gold in the tailings. That accounts for this unnatural landscape the earth abhors enough to try to hide with trees far enough from this poisonous stew to survive not to turn into some new form of life.

The sign marking this location is still partially visible in the trees and I posted it as just a ‘set-up’ picture for this colourful mess. I’m not sure what would happen to a human body if submerged in this concoction but the odds are strong that it wouldn’t be pretty.

BTW, those who know I’m colourblind will be pleased to know this photograph was simply enlarged for Red Bubble standards and otherwise left completely ‘as is’. In other words, the colour of this water is as accurate as the colours of the trees and the sky. Ugghhh.

For those of you unfamiliar with the television game show Jeopardy in America, this is an extremely popular trivia game for people with far too much time on their hands and way too much brain power available to get them into trouble. There are categories for sets of questions and the host, Alex, is asked by each contestant what category of questions to call an answer from: this show makes you ask the question when Alex gives you the answer.
