Atom Town: artworks and writing about people places and technology by Gair Dunlop

Invited to document the slow closure of iconic fighter station RAF Coltishall between 2006 and 2009, I made two films. Dispersals is about ritual in the face of change. Simulator/Realtime is set in the Jaguar simulator, where a digital approximation of the airfield seemed to have more life and continuity than the real one.
And then there was the Welsh missile skirmish...

There is also a series of photographs on the slow return of a feral and elegaic nature on site. Writings ensued.
