to mask the absence
loophole supplements

"this carefully crafted visual puzzle
combines found images of disused nuclear
and military communications bunkers,
along with the artist’s own deconstruction
of a naval signalling station in plymouth.
a quote from borges about ‘the fictitious
past’ and an extract from an interview
with ayn rand complete the uneasy
sense of abandoned systems and ideologies
which, though once deemed redundant,
may still come back to haunt us."
