Cooling Reactors is a conceptual performative piece, which takes place as an intervention on Cherry Beach situated on Lake Ontario, which is home to three nuclear generators. This video points to the nuclear accidents that have happened in the past as well as the potential for a greater catastrophe. It also makes reference to global, ecological and political issues that force people to leave their homeland looking for a better future in the first world.
