Darren Jorgensen tackles the topic of nuclear waste and the possible plan to make Australia the dump site. If this were to occur the affect it would have on the Australian land as well as the Aboriginal communities that inhabit it would be quiet destructive and detrimental. Jorgensen explains the situation whereby foreign countries seek to dump their nuclear waste in Australian land by bribing its inhabitants for the right to do so.
In addition to this Jorgensen also explains the nature of monuments and its significance towards portraying an indexical symbol of, in this situation, danger by exploring the involvement of aboriginal artists in relation to the creation of such monuments.
