I don’t know the background behind this. I just think it’s eerie and interesting.
I also don’t know the context of that image, but here’s some art in the same vein:
Yellow Dust Maskby Steven Godfrey and Hannah Rosner
“In the late part of World War II, the government and Enrico Fermi began to test atomic bombs in New Mexico. Needed for the bombs was uranium, also available from that area. The yellow sandstone was blasted from the soil, leaving behind the rich uranium for government use. Both the Navaho and Hopi tribes were affected by this action; they were hired to work in the mines without protection from the dust, the radiation, and from uranium poisoning. Many developed cancer, and breathing problems , a lung disease known as silicosis from the glass-sharp fragments in the dusty air.
This mask tells the story of these fatal mines, when the yellow dust was removed from the earth, of the fruitless fight in Congress during the 40’s, and then again the win of the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act more than 50 years later, in 1990.”
