Plan C (2010)

We made a rather adventurous trip to Chernobyl, Ukraine, site in 1986 of one of the most dramatic nuclear disasters ever. The project – a collaboration with artists Ryan C Doyle, Todd Chandler, Tod Seelie, Jeff Stark and Steve Valdez – was inspired by Tarkovsky’s movie Stalker. It resulted in a big public installation in Manchester, UK, assembled with scrap metal scavenged from the Zone.

 

Let Them Believe is a short film by Todd Chandler and Jeff Stark, based on the project.
