This image is composed from a very peculiar drilling core, sourced from an enormous rubbish dump in Tripoli, Lebanon.

A landfill bordering the sea and exposed to the elements, it has accumulated waste over a period of twenty-five years. This sedimentation has radically altered the local landscape, and today forms hills that rise forty-five meters above sea level; here, technofossils resist time and remain long after surrounding landscapes disappear.
