two monuments for wales:
the first on the outskrits of the coal-mining-town: merthyr tydfil. now dismantled and left alone, nothing much left to remind you of its past. the latter right on the border to its beloved neighbour england, something between a national animal and a fence
merthyr junction, merthyr tydfil
was there a mining past to merthyr? tell me about it. remind me where i am coming from. tell me story. tell me tale. how black was my valley?
the roundabout is around what merthyr was about. mining. a sloped exvacation ±10 meters deep. matte black minerals. absorbing light and curiosity. reflecting heritage and memory
