Curiosity Box #15 (magnetic reversal) | found box, pigment prints, mixed media | 2007
Periodically, the earth’s magnetic poles reverse. Scientists have detected signs that the process is now under way, and this will be the first time humans will experience the phenomenon. No one knows what to expect or just what will be the sequence of events when this occurs. Some forecast dire results, others expect it to happen without major disruption. This box combines diagrams and geologic objects related to this occurrence.
