This work looks at the legacy of industry and mining through out Europe and how it has shaped and altered various landscapes and topographies. Pascal is interested in the geographic impact of post-industrial environments and how they fit into our wider concept of what the human or natural landscape is and how we perceive it. He is also interested in the temporality of these environments any how they exist in a state of flux, changing from busy industrial areas to abandoned structures of dereliction that leave very few traces behind as they are subsumed by nature, or demolished. These structures and landscapes are peripheral and have a sense of ‘otherness’ in the context of place and landscape culture, refusing to fit in to prescribed notions of landscape or conventional socio-geographic norms.
This work focus’s on the aesthetics of obsolescence in post-industrial topographies and the residual legacy of these environments such as the aftermath of what is left behind when this type landscape’s resource values become redundant.
