stabilized and sealed


Once a year, the White Sands Missile Range opens its gates to allow visitors to step foot on to Ground Zero of the Trinity atomic bomb test location. On April 5, 2014, friends and I travelled to experience the site for ourselves. I spent the whole time staring at the visitors—trying to figure out who they were, why they were there, what they felt they needed to do, and what that might mean about both us as people and the site itself. The result is stabilized and sealed, a portrait of the experience of the place.

As with No Loitering, the unnamed.pdf zines, and Left Cartridge, download and view stabilized and sealed on screen (6MB) or download, print (duplex or organize pages back-to-back, use the screen version as your guide), and bind your own (22MB). The DIY file is sized to print on 8.5×11″ paper. Please note that the .pdf typically looks better downloaded and viewed on your device rather than through Dropbox on a browser; also (for DIY printing) choose Actual Size rather than Fit to Page for your print option, or the gutters and margins will misalign.
