Ballard’s Tachistoscope

Part 2 Project 2018

University of Lincoln Lincoln UK
The project explores the dichotomy between reality and representation created by the media through an exploration of JG Ballard’s novel The Atrocity Exhibition. Birnbeck Pier in Weston Super Mare becomes a Ballardian landscape; the ultimate playground to test Ballard’s spatial narratives. The project programme is focused on providing an environment for the distinction between reality and representation; spaces to understand how plastic surgery and advertising can create illusions.
