Dusts of Construction Recorded contribution to Sonic Dust, a KGAP 96.7FM radio issue of Materials and Applications, Los Angeles, February 2023.
Curated by Isabel Kuh.
Sawdust, brick dust, aggregate, crushed tile, decomposed granite, gypsum crumble... Dust is pure byproduct, the ultimate waste material, proliferating from cutting, sanding, transporting, and erosion of construction material. Dust is never really the focus of building, but rather, that which must be swept away.

In the audio format of a series of recipes, this "reading" of dust attends to the surplus of the surplus waste from dustbins of construction and demolition. Unconventional biomaterial dusts (eggshell, coffee grounds, excavated soil) may also be stirred into the audio. The recipe reading will be interspersed with footnotes on the material limits to growth, and sprinkles in concepts such as "gross domestic practices" and urban mining.
