There are places that we don't want to know anything about, places that we would rather pretend don't exist at all. One such place is a dumpsite. From the humans' point of view, it is a ghastly place, a stinking desert of trash. But it's a desert that is teaming with life. The astounding profusion of insects, reptiles, birds and mammals, all intertwined in an existential life-death relationship imparts to it with some strangely alluring dream-like quality.
