The suburbs were defined2021
This work was developed from the material research of the original manuscript JG Ballard’s 2006 novel, ‘Kingdom Come’. It is a cautionary tale of the power, seduction and corruption of consumerism, in part inspired by Ballard’s trips to The Bentall Centre in Kingston. The images were part of an installation that included the scanner and objects that were used to create the images in the Eadweard Muybridge Gallery, Kingston Museum situated side by side with Muybridge’s equipment as a reflection of the changes in the mechanical imaging of the world.
