Martin Bence

Lycanthrope

I grew up near Greenham common when it was an airbase, home to USAF nuclear missiles during the 1980's. I have constructed the Greenham images from multiple photographs to achieve resolution and scale, and employ contiguous side borders to create an 'Esher-esque' continuous closed loop landscape. These are landscapes not as document but as archetype, which come into being through the act of manipulation. This benign strip of land became a locus of fear and threat during its operation as an airbase. As with so many landscapes touched by conflict, it may now have all the appearance of normality but the legacy of its time whilst transformed remains.
