At the Kawah Ijen

At the Kawah Ijen volcano in Indonesia, bright yellow elemental sulphur is mined, but the valuable sulphur is also flammable and easily catches fire. It burns with a blue flame but also produces choking fumes of sulphur dioxide. Each night a team of workers must brave the harsh conditions and put out the flames to keep the mine active and the sulphur pure.

Forces of Nature

About Forces of Nature

"Forces of Nature" illustrates how we experience Earth's natural forces, including shape, elements, color and motion. Although we can't immediately feel the motion of Earth's fundamental forces, we witness the consequences, such as tidal bores surging through the Amazon rainforest or the intense and ruinous power of hurricanes.
