Reflections Upon Nuclear Materiality, Gare Loch Duality and the #UndesiredLine
Reflections Upon Nuclear Materiality, Gare Loch Duality and the #UndesiredLine is the next chapter in an ongoing project which B. D. Owens began in 2018.
In this installation, he reflects upon the dualistic and complex reality of living in close proximity to the Faslane Nuclear Submarine base.
