Dead Sea Dying On the banks of the Dead Sea, there where God is said to have destroyed the sinful cities of Sodom and Gomorra, the earth is once again opening up; the sea level is dropping by one meter per year, and there on the banks of the salt lake, date trees and massage parlors are being consumed by sinkholes. While the name of the lake itself seems to be transforming into a self-fulfilling prophecy, tremendous industrial facilities twinkle at night at the site where Sodom once existed. Tourists feel their way around in the waters in search of cures, and behind the beaches, excavators are digging up the land in preparation for the next luxury hotel. A kaleidoscopic look at a dystopian place where people perpetually revolve around themselves.
