Here are some fantastic pictures that Ucup sent along from Indonesia: they feature the two prints, wonderfully stitched together, at the site of the Sidoarjo mud-flow, an environmental and social disaster area in North Java. The desolate area in the background is the result of a blowout of a natural-gas well. Hot volcanic mud has been pouring from the site of the well for years, inundating local villages and fields and displacing thousands. These photos were taken during a recent solidarity campaign organized by Taring Padi artists and activists.
