In “Cold,” we move from air conditioning, to the flocking of American retirees to the now habitable Sunbelt, to the shift of political power from north to south. Freezing leads him to the creation of sperm banks, which have given many more women the opportunity to conceive and changed our notions of marriage and parenthood. “Sound” begins in the reverberating cave dwellings of Paleolithic man in Burgundy and ends up with the ultrasound technology being used to determine the sex of unborn children. “Clean” takes us from Chicago’s sewer system, the first urban system in America, to the growth of household cleaning products like Clorox and the hyper sanitized plants where microchips are made.
