In Switzerland, nuclear waste is expected to be stored in deep geological layers by 2050. Placed in cavities dug more than 700m underground, the most toxic of them must remain buried for a million years so that they no longer represent any danger to humans and the environment. 

Both spatially and temporally, these notions are beyond us. Through different representation modalities, Horizon spéculatif explores and questions our perception of temporalities and spatialities related to nuclear waste.
