Geiger Tourism

Geiger Tourism  - is composed of two screen prints from locations in Pripyat, Chernobyl. The first is an amusement park that was completed just before the power plant disaster and consequently never used. The other is the façade of the town’s cultural centre. Both are now visited by guided tours with visitors invited to stroll around with Geiger detectors.

This can be read as a simple form of curiosity but equally it might just be a reflection of another quality of human nature – an optimism that drive us to move on.
