When Need Moves the Earth

Sutthirat Supaparinya, 2013.

When Need Moves the Earth is an interactive installation created by Thailandese artist Sutthirat Supaparinya under the sponsorship of the EOS ART Projects 2010-2013. The work centers around the Srinakarin water dam and the Mae Moh lignite, or brown coal, mine both of which are used to generate electricity. In addition to drastically altering the landscape, coal mining and dam building are known to be a potential cause of man-made earthquakes.
