Life In Industrial East Oakland

Life In Industrial East Oakland: there's a guy in a white space suit (complete with mirror-glassed helmet) walking gingerly around the weed- and garbage-strewn vacant lot just across the street from my studio. He's carefully poking and waving some sort of wand at selected bits of the ground; the wand's connected to a pack on his back which has some sort of antenna connected to it. There's a couple more space-suited guys standing a few metres away from him next to a truck, holding their helmets by their sides, watching him carefully. The sign on the side of the truck prominently mentions toxic waste surveying and disposal. I walk across this lot several times a week; kids play in it all the time.
