Pazugoo names a constellation of 3d-printed demons, which are proposed as future underground markers for deep geological repository sites of long-term nuclear waste storage. The work takes its name from Pazuzu, the Babylonian-Assyrian demon of dust and contagion, combined with the ‘gooey’ reformulation of museum objects that form its composite body.

The building of Pazugoos takes place through a range of artist-led processes and collaborative workshops, where freely available online digital 3D object files of scanned museum figures are edited according to the specific Pazuzu morphology - a figure with an excess of wings, with one hand raised upward.

The resulting hybrid objects, inhabiting museum and gallery exhibitions, act as an index for the burial project, where models are proposed to mark underground perimeters of low-level radioactive waste disposal sites.

Against current proposals to mark radioactive waste storage sites, the objects, buried underground, highlight the materiality of the waste itself as part of an ongoing ecology of toxicity. The work uses mythic fiction as method to connect local sites with histories and deep time futures of radioactive waste.
