Spectre (2015)

 

 

Spectre (2015) documents a Cold War bunker situated in Acomb, York. Resembling a time capsule, this nuclear attack observation post is positioned out of time, existing in a static, unchanging state. Like a phantom, the space is fixed at the moment of its demise, haunting us with an alternative history.

A silent, site-specific video commissioned by Vespertine York in association with York Archaeological Trust in response to The York Bunker English Heritage site. This film premiered on the 22nd July 2015 as part of VESP#3.
