Inequal Exposure

This Bostonian layered rice dish makes a critical statement about the class-based disparities in relation to densities of hazardous waste sites in Massachusetts. Basically it shows that the poorer you are, the more you are exposed to pollution. Hence, the black rice increases with the density of waste sites, with a dramatical looking sewage of waste (pesto) of the upper layer into the soil (white rice). Finally, the amount of scrambled egg on top indicates the income group.
