Foulness is an experimental film that expands the impact and convergence of two moments in time. Firstly June 5th 1952, when Britain’s first ever atomic bomb was moved from Foulness to Shoebury, and then to Australia and detonated. The second moment, a feeling of deep unease encountered while capturing the headlands on my phone, without prior knowledge of the history. The presentation of the moving image work is corroded by UV reactive pigment on a custom made screen. The work is an exploration of feeling, intuition and memory intersecting with ongoing conversations around tensions between violence and perceived care.
