thilafushi – mammoth // building nothing out of something


[A ferry arrives at Thilafushi, the world’s largest island composed primarily of garbage, in a photograph from an excellent photo-essay on Thilafushi by flickr user AB Watson Year.  Thilafushi, which is located in and was constructed by the Maldives on the site of a former lagoon, spreads across 124 acres in the Indian Ocean, ever growing with often-toxic accretions of bottles, batteries,  and tires.  Glacier/Island/Storm posts on islands include InfraNet Lab’s “LandFab, or Manufacturing Terrain” and Quiet Babylon’s “Islands in the Net”.]
