Abstract

Yellowcake: atomic modern is a 66 minute film which traces the rise and fall of the UK nuclear fission research programme, seen through its sites, archives, memories and consequences. Gair Dunlop has spent 3 years gaining unique access to a range of research sites, archives and restricted facilities.
As well as physical remains, the film explores the psychic realms of the nuclear- whether as postwar dream of a post-empire future, apocalyptic terror as entertainment, or zone beyond our understandings of time.
The film can be seen as a three screen full-HD installation with quad sound (preferred format) or as a single screen video with stereo sound.
UK Preview of full 3 screen installation will take place at VRC, Dundee Contemporary Arts, Dundee on 8th and 9th April.
Single screen version will be seen at Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh from April 1st - May 7th.
Single screen version will be seen at Rome Media Art Festival, 27-29th April at MaXXi museum.
