The "east" and "west" columns of Stratigraphic Columns III (San Andreas), each have digitally compressed geologic images from the east and west sides of the San Andreas fault respectively. Continuing the theme of "anthroturbation" examined in other projects, digitally compressed architectural images from the destruction by the 1906 earthquake of San Francisco are included as strata in the columns. The architectural images are shown as positives in the east column and inverted negatives in the west column.
