297 x 420mm. 24pp 120gsm  matt white newsprint  

A publication developed from the original manuscript of JG Ballard’s 2006 novel, Kingdom Come held at the British Library. The words are ‘ghosts’ from the manuscripts, having being retrieved from Ballard’s deletions. Kingdom Come is a cautionary tale about the power, seduction and violence of consumerism, in part inspired by Ballard’s trips to The Bentall Centre in Kingston. Images were assembled by scanning objects and embedding them into a virtual 3D space. They are digital images that have had multiple outings, as moving images, as glass slides, and this - an A3 publication. The publication was launched as part of ‘Another Land: Experimental Visualisations of Place’ at Kingston Museum.
