Series of responses to regeneration in Barrow-in-Furness, exploring the area's relationship with nuclear technology...

As part of Revisioning Utopia, a collaboration between artists and architects hosted by Art Gene...

 

Never intended for actual production, the below proposal was presented to the public and local council of Barrow-in-Furness to stimulate dialogue. People discussed their hushed pride over the skilled work they undertake within the nuclear industry, and their feelings about publicly honouring their controversial trade.

The below poem was presented to members of the local council. It intended to reveal the texture of the areas relationship with nuclear technology, rather than take a set position on this relationship.

This poster directly responds to the Love Barrow branding campaign. It suggests an alternative route to improving the image of the area: by addressing the public perception of nuclear technology.
