About the Project

Words and photographs by Michael Cook. Mapping lost to ongoing technological entropy.

This is a project that ran from roughly 2004 - 2014. During that time, the site provided views into close to a hundred stormwater and wastewater sewers across Southern Ontario, along with mapping, histories and contemporary commentary about underground and surface infrastructure.

A retrospective work to collect and contextualise the most interest stories and articles from this period is currently in preparation. Reach out if you'd like to know more, or would be interested in exploring options for publishing this work in other media.
