TOURING EXHIBIT: The True Cost of Oil: Tar Mine and truck #4. Alberta Tar Sands 2010.

At the edge of an 80 meter deep mine, a massive tar sands truck is dwarfed by the surrounding landscape. These 400 ton trucks are the world’s largest measuring 25 feet high, 47 ½ feet long, and 32 feet wide. The mines, machinery, and trucks of the Alberta Tar Sands were the inspiration for Avatar’s Edmonton born art director’s vision of the mining operation on Pandora.
